Project WILD Workshops Set for April at Leonardo's in Enid


The Enid News and Eagle reports that a Project WILD workshop for classroom teachers, youth group leaders and other educators is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 28 at Leonardo’s Discovery Warehouse in Enid.

Pre-registration is required; cost is $15. Participants will need to bring a sack lunch. For registration information, contact Joyce Fales, Leonardo’s education coordinator, at (580) 233-2787 or education@leonardos.org.

Oklahoma Project WILD workshops are for any adult who is interested in teaching kids about the outdoors. At the workshop, participants receive two activity guides consisting of more than 170 hands-on activities. Guides are only available by attending a workshop where participants will actually experience activities and learn more about Oklahoma’s wildlife and habitats.     

The Project WILD curriculum is designed for students in grades K-12 and any learning level. Classroom teachers, youth group leaders, home school educators, naturalists and park, zoo and museum educators will find the curriculum useful. Teachers will need to check with their school districts about whether Project WILD workshops will earn professional development credit.

University of Central Oklahoma sponsors Oklahoma Project WILD, with funding provided by Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. For information on Oklahoma Project WILD, contact Lisa Anderson at (405) 990-1292 or okprojectwild@fullnet.net.
