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. Complete and return a reservation request form PDF Document. Several of our programs do have Fish and Game staff involved as part of the curriculum unit.
