Idaho Project WILD is an award-winning, fish and wildlife-focused conservation education program designed to help educators incorporate fish, wildlife and conservation into their classrooms. But you don't have to be a teacher to participate.
“These workshops are designed for anyone interested in sharing nature with children,” said Lori Adams, Project WILD coordinator. “Scout leaders, parents or anyone interested in sharing nature with children will benefit.”
A two-day Project WILD about fishing workshop will be held on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13 at the Idaho Fish and Game office in Lewiston, 3316 16th St. The workshop will run from 4:30-9 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on Saturday.
Participants will learn about basic fishing gear, fish identification, biology, will receive a hatchery tour and have a chance to go fishing at a local pond. Educators can earn a professional development credit and learn ways to incorporate a lifetime sport into their curriculum while kids get excited about learning!
