Cheyenne - Teachers are known for inspiring kids in the classroom, but now they can take that energy outdoors. The Wyoming Game and Fish Department is offering a camp for educators to learn how to ignite students’ passion for wildlife and habitats. Educator camp is set for July 29-31 at the Game and Fish Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp outside Dubois.

The three-day professional development workshop will give teachers an introduction to a variety of outdoor learning activities. Participants will go back to school with tools, strategies and sample lesson plans that align with the Next Generation Science Standards.

Additionally, an optional Project WILD workshop will be held prior to camp on July 28. Project WILD education curriculum conservation and environmental guides are the most widely-used in the nation. By completing this workshop, educators will gain access to easy-to-use lessons about wildlife and conservation of natural resources.

While science-based, educator camp can apply to other disciplines, too.

“We will show educators how history, language arts and art can be incorporated into learning about the outdoors,” said Ashley Leonard, Game and Fish conservation education coordinator.

The cost of the camp is $150. Educators can earn two University of Wyoming graduate credits or 4.5 PTSB credits. Educators who attend the Project WILD workshop can earn an additional .5 PTSB credit. Participants are responsible for enrollment and payment of $50 per graduate-credit-hour requested from the University of Wyoming in addition to the cost of the camp.

 Registration is available online until May 1. Questions can be directed to Ashley Leonard at ashley.leonard@wyo.gov or (307) 777-4535.
