Educators: Schedule a Free Spring Classroom Wildlife Program
Deadline: March 7, 2014
CONCORD, N.H. -- Teachers who want to introduce their students in grades 3-6 to New Hampshire’s wildlife resources – or reinforce wildlife-related lessons they have learned – have until March 7, 2014, to request spring 2014 Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) presentations by trained New Hampshire Fish and Game Department volunteer docents.
Wonders of Wildlife is a series of active educational programs presented in the classroom. Fish and Game WOW docents travel to New Hampshire schools to present one of four interactive programs for grades 3-6: Habits and Habitats; Endangered Species; Pond Ecology; and Wetlands. There is no charge for the programs.
Any teacher who has not already scheduled a WOW presentation this school year may schedule a session for their students. To download a print-and-mail application, go to wildnh.com/Education/Wonders_of_Wildlife.html and click on “Program Request Form.”
“This program can be a great resource to support your classroom teaching about wildlife and the environment," said program coordinator Mary Goodyear, a Fish and Game wildlife educator. "Our enthusiastic WOW volunteer docents are eager to share their knowledge of the outdoors and help build conservation awareness in our youth."
Last school year, 28 volunteer Fish and Game WOW docents presented nearly 100 programs to students statewide.
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state’s fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats. Visit wildnh.com.
