PROJECT WILD & WET WORKSHOP OFFERED IN SOUTHEAST OHIO
ATHENS, OH – Teachers, scout leaders, naturalists, and other formal and non-formal educators interested in conservation and environmental education should consider attending a combined Project WILD & WET workshop, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.
Project WILD is a supplementary education program emphasizing awareness, appreciation, and understanding of wildlife and natural resources. Attractive and easy to use, Project WILD is an ideal way to supplement your curriculum and fire the imagination of your students. Project WILD teaches young people how to think about wildlife, not what to think. The hands-on, diverse activities help develop problem-solving and decision making skills in determining responsible human actions.
The Project WET Foundation is dedicated to reaching children, parents, teachers, and community members of the world with water education. Project WET workshops are designed to create opportunities for participants to network and share implementation ideas, and also to encourage participants to translate knowledge into communication and action.
