Educators – Schedule a Classroom Wildlife Program
Deadline: March 1
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 March 1 to request spring 2010 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.
Teachers who have not already scheduled a WOW presentation this school year may download a print-and-mail request form on the Fish and Game website. Go to 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, providing a great resource to support what you may be teaching about wildlife and the environment in the classroom,” said program coordinator Mary Goodyear, a Fish and Game wildlife educator. “These programs are working to shape future wildlife stewards in New Hampshire.”
Last school year, 50 volunteer WOW docents presented more than 160 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 www.WildNH.com.
