Project WILD, conducted by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD), invites the opportunity for people that work with children to explore the world of wildlife and ecosystems using fun, hands-on educational activities.
During the six-hour professional development training, workshop participants will sample activities and receive a Project WILDK-12 Activity Guide.
Activities are adaptable for all grade levels, integrated with core subject curricula and aligned to the TEKS. Teachers, home schoolers, informal educators and scout leaders are welcome.
Project WILD facilitator training to conduct workshops has the prerequisite of attending one of the basic six-hour educator workshops and leading at least one workshop a year. An Aquatic Wild workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., February 21, at the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park (tpwd.texas.gov/calendar/aquatic-wild-7). A Project Wild workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., March 21, at the Dallas Zoo (tpwd.texas.gov/calendar/project-wild-13).
