Educators: Deadline to Reserve Classroom Wildlife Programs Is February 27
CONCORD, N.H. -- Educators 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 February 27 to request spring 2009 Wonders of Wildlife (WOW) presentations by 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 elementary schools to teach one of four interactive programs: Habits and Habitats; Endangered Species; Pond Ecology; and Wetlands. There is no charge for the programs.
For a program request form to print and mail, visit www.WildNH.com/Education/ed_Wonders_of_Wildlife.htm and click on "Unit Request Form."
"Our enthusiastic WOW volunteer docents are eager to share their knowledge of the outdoors," said WOW program coordinator Mary Goodyear, a Fish and Game wildlife educator. "These programs are working to shape the future stewards of wildlife in New Hampshire."
The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department is the guardian of the state's fish, wildlife and marine resources and their habitats.
