Project Wild is a wildlife oriented, multi-disciplinary set of activities that develop awareness, knowledge and skills concerning the relationships between humans, wildlife and the natural world.
The activity guides provided free of charge to participants provide new ways to use wildlife concepts to teach the basic subjects of Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Language Arts and other subjects. They do not take time away from established curriculums.
Project Wild was developed in cooperation with teachers and is currently used in 50 states, the D.C., and seven countries. Over 70% of Idaho's teachers have received the training and materials to use Project Wild in their classrooms.
