Are you a teacher that is wild about wildlife? If so, this workshop might be for you! Idaho Fish and Game is hosting a 3-evening Project WILD workshop scheduled Tuesday, March 3rd, Wednesday, March 4th and Thursday, March 5th. All classes will be held from 4:30pm-9:30pm at the Lewiston regional office at 3316 16th street.

Project WILD is an international program, which in Idaho is offered through the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. At workshops, teachers learn ways to easily incorporate wildlife and ecological concepts into a subject they are already teaching. Wildlife is a tool that gets the kids excited about learning!
The goal of Project WILD is to assist learners of any age in the development of awareness, knowledge and skills towards responsible behavior and constructive action for wildlife and the environment. Educational activity guides provide information and projects on the following topics;
- the appreciation of wildlife
- human values and wildlife
- wildlife and ecological systems
- wildlife conservation
- cultural and social interaction with wildlife
- wildlife issues and trends
- wildlife and responsible human actions
Each activity in the book includes a statement of the instructional objectives, a description of the instructional methods employed, background information for instructors and lists of any materials needed. The Lewiston workshop date is approaching fast! For more information or to register contact Jen Bruns (208) 799-5010 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
