About Project WILD
Looking for practical tools for teaching out on the land? SaskOutdoors is hosting a fun and practical training session aimed at introducing educators to the interdisciplinary Project WILD Activity Guide.
The Project WILD Guide (included in price) provides educators with 121 experiential lesson plans about wildlife and the environment that can be adapted for any age, grade or subject.
About Flying WILD
Flying WILD's focus is on migratory birds and is designed to inspire young people (grade 1-9) to discover more about the natural world. It encourages students to get involved in activities that promote environmental learning and stewardship. The Flying WILD program places special emphasis on reaching urban schools with student populations that traditionally receive few opportunities to participate in environmental education initiatives. Flying WILD will have broad appeal in Saskatchewan Elementary Schools throughout the province. Three of the four North American Flyways pass through Saskatchewan!
Flying WILD: An Educators Guide to Celebrating Birds is teacher friendly and has 43 complete lesson plans aimed at Middle Years students, divided between Teacher-Led, Volunteer-Led, and Student-Led activities. A unique feature of the Flying WILD program is the service-learning projects, which encourage students to become active stewards of migratory bird habitats locally and globally. Additionally, teachers, community members, and students are encouraged to plan, organize, and deliver a School Bird Festival to enhance community education about the barriers facing migratory birds and how we can help provide better habitat.
