Project WILD

 

What is Project WILD?


Project WILD provides educators with the tools, training and resources needed to engage students in active, hands-on learning about wildlife and the environment. The program focuses on developing students' critical thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills through the use of cross-curricular lessons that are designed to address diverse teaching and learning styles. A balanced approach to key environmental issues teaches students how to think, not what to think about wildlife and the environment.

The activity guides are available only by participating in interactive, hands-on, fun workshops. Workshop participants gain valuable experience in using the guides, selecting and conducting activities to meet curriculum requirements and improve their content knowledge.

Since 1984, over 22,000 Oklahoma educators have attended an Oklahoma Project WILD workshop and been certified in Project WILD, Flying WILD or Science and Civics. Oklahoma Project WILD is a program of the University of Central Oklahoma and is funded in part by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
