Wildlife workshop for educators scheduled in Ketchum

Idaho Fish and Game will host a WILD about Early Learners workshop in Ketchum for educators of pre-Kindergarten to second grade to help them learn fun and exciting ways to teach wildlife conservation in the classroom.

“But this workshop is not just for teachers,” said Lori Adams, Project WILD coordinator.  “Scout leaders, parents, day care providers, or anyone interested in sharing nature with children is welcome to participate.”

The workshop will be held September 16 and 17 at the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens.  

Participants will receive an Idaho WILD about Early Learners Guide which is full of fun, educational activities for younger students. In the specialized guide, teachers will find hands-on activities, music and movement, resource lists, home connections and much more. Workshop participants will also receive the activity-filled Project WILD and WILD Aquatics guides appropriate for students of all ages. 

Cost is $45, which includes all guides, supplemental materials and a potato bar lunch. College credit is available for an additional $60-75.
