Project Wild

Project WILD is one of the most widely-used conservation and environmental education programs among educators of kindergarten through high school and informal education.

A WILD Curriculum!

Project WILD aims to provide wildlife-based conservation and environmental education that fosters responsible actions toward wildlife and related natural resources.


With over 250 hands-on lessons, WILD activities are engaging, teaching students how to link - not what to think - about fish and wildlife conservation. These lessons are easy to use and are a cost-effective way to develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

How do I obtain project WILD curriculum guides to implement in my classroom?

You must attend a training workshop to get your hands on the Project WILD curriculum. These are offered throughout the year at a minimal cost to cover curriculum materials.

Project Learning Tree

From its beginnings in 1976, Project Learning Tree has exemplified high-quality environmental education. It is the environmental education program of the American Forest Foundation. 

Teach kids about trees, forests, and the natural world- and help them understand and value the environment's important role in our lives.


Make learning fun both outside and indoors! PLT has a variety of curriculum guides for grades PreK - 12. The Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood guide offers over 130 hands-on experiences to engage students.


PLT environmental education activities:

  • Take children outside to experience and investigate nature.
  • Teach core subjects- STEM, reading, writing and social studies.
  • Meet PreK-12 academic standards, including Common Core and the Next Generation Science Standards.
  • Meet the requirements for Girl Scout Badges and Journeys and other youth programs.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
  • Inspire youth to improve the environment- at their school, home, and community.
  • Introduce students to careers in natural resources.

PLT workshops provide PTSB and STARS credit to classroom teachers and day-care providers, with additional opportunities to earn graduate credit with the University of Wyoming at two-day combined Project Learning Tree and Project WILD workshops.
