Project WILD

Participate in a professional development workshop focused on wildlife and conservation education.

Project WILD

The goal of the Project WILD program is to assist learners of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills and commitment that will result in informed decisions, responsible behavior and constructive actions concerning wildlife, people and the environment.

These nationally known wildlife-oriented workshops are for formal and non-formal educators working with PreK-12 audiences. People who participate in workshops include teachers, scout leaders, rangers, day care providers, community leaders, after school providers, parents, and maybe even you.

The curriculum/activity guides are available by attending a 6-hour educator workshop. Workshops are run by Project WILD facilitators who are educators like yourself. Workshops can be scheduled to accommodate your group's or school's in-service training. Click on the Project WILD Workshop Calendar below for a current schedule of publicly available workshops. Project WILD in Massachusetts is sponsored by MassWildlife.
