Project WILD Educator Workshop at Seneca Park Zoo
Project WILD (
) is an interdisciplinary conservation and environmental education program emphasizing wildlife and was heavily updated in March 2018. The revised guide has new background & science information for activities, heavy STEM/STEAM connections, and career connections. Activities in the guide cover in-depth field explorations, hands-on activities, and crossdiscipline lessons connecting reading & math with science and social studies. The activities cover grades K-12 and include early childhood adjustments for some of the activities. 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.
