Project WILD is an interdisciplinary environmental education program emphasizing wildlife. The goal of Project WILD is to assist learners of any age in developing awareness, knowledge, skills, and commitment resulting in informed decisions, responsible behavior, and constructive actions concerning wildlife and the environment. In 2018, Project WILD released a brand-new updated version of the Project WILD K-12 Curriculum and Activity Guide which included significant changes. The new WILD guide now includes Field Investigation Activities, In Step with STEM activity extensions, a WILD Work career section, and Outdoor Components.
This workshop will train participants to become certified Project WILD facilitators who can offer their own Project WILD workshops. It is open to DCNR education staff, interested Commonwealth employees, and any experienced Educator (formal or non-formal) who is interested in becoming a Project WILD Facilitator. Certified Facilitators must commit to leading at least one Project WILD workshop every 5 years to maintain active facilitator status. This training will be interactive, occur both indoors and outdoors, and participants will co-lead a Project WILD activity (all materials provided).
Act 48 hours will be provided to certified teachers. Registrants do not need to have attended a 'regular' Project WILD Educator Workshop to become a Project WILD Facilitator, but it is encouraged.
Space is limited; register early. Participants must attend both days. Each participant is responsible for their own overnight lodging and travel expenses. Beverages, breaks, and lunch on day 2 provided. Pre-registration is required.
