Is someone available from Fish and Game to come to my class?
We get many of these kinds of requests; unfortunately, due to limited staff time, we have difficulty in being able to honor those requests. Please check out the other materials we have available that you can use in your classroom. If you are a 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th grade teacher, we do have our Wonders of Wildlife Program free of charge that you can request. You can choose from four different one- to 1.5-hour presentations. Click here for information and a reservation request form. Several of our programs do have Fish and Game staff involved as part of the curriculum unit.

What kinds of teacher staff development and workshops does Fish and Game offer?
Fish and Game education staff are pleased to be able to offer a wide variety of teacher training opportunities including Project WILD, Aquatic Project WILD, Schoolyard Habitat, Watershed Ecology (see specific program for fees). We are also available to design specific content training for your school at no charge. See Professional Development.

Do you have classroom quantities of any materials?
Yes we do! There are several items which we can offer you in classroom quantities, including Discovering New Hampshire Wildlife (a full-color brochure on common N.H. wildlife), track cards (pocket-size identification card) and Wild Times for Kids (a publication published twice per year designed for 3-6 grade on different wildlife-related topics). See Resources.
