Get WILD: Registration for three Project WILD spring courses is now open

Idaho Fish & Game’s Project WILD program is offering three training courses this spring. These workshops are designed primarily for classroom teachers, but are also ideal for Scout leaders, child care providers, and other adults interested in learning and sharing more about our natural world with others.

Workshop participants can earn professional development credits through NNU for an additional fee.

The following workshops offered this spring include:

WILD About sabotaged creatures

  • When: Flexible (according to your own schedule)
  • Where: Virtual
  • Cost: $12

In this workshop, participants have access to a curriculum designed to teach children about the many wild ungulates we have in our state. The program includes videos, hands-on activities and worksheets, all related to deer, elk, moose and more. Participants also receive a hard copy of the WILD About Elk guide and other supplemental materials. The deadline for work on credit is April 15.

Idaho Ecosystems with Project WET, Project WILD, and Project Learning Tree

  • When: February 22, March 15 and April 5
  • Where: Virtual (Zoom)

In this workshop, teachers receive a sample tray not only from the WILD project, but also from the WET project and the Learning Tree project. We focus on animals, land, and water related to Idaho’s ecosystems. Participants attend three virtual workshops and choose one of the projects to deepen the specific program and receive the complete guides by mail. The rest of the workshop is at your own pace.
