Project WILD

Project WILD is a renowned national program that provides guidelines and materials for educators who teach students kindergarten through high school.

GFP provides Project WILD workshops for educators throughout the year to help them become familiar with materials and gain an appreciation for the value they add to a student's classroom experience. GFP is able to offer these classes thanks to the sportsmen and –women who provide their support through the purchase of hunting and fishing licenses in the state of South Dakota.

Project WILD teaches students how to think - not what to think - about fish and wildlife conservation. The curriculum guides contain over 260 hands-on activities.

Workshop Features:

  • the activities are supplementary, designed to be integrated into your existing curriculum
