Environmental Education
Project WILD
The International Crane Foundation is honored to partner with the Project WILD program to bring you quality educational materials to teach kids how to think, not what to think about environmental issues.
What is Project WILD?
A nationwide environmental education program consisting of activity guides and supplementary environmental education materials for K-12 classrooms, youth groups, home schools, and nature centers. Project WILD encompasses over 165 environmental education activities. Wisconsin's project WILD program is sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. Combined funding from agency bureaus, grants, user fees, and gifts from conservation and environmental organizations support the program.
Project WILD includes:
Project WILD K-12 Activity Guide - over 165 activities focusing on wildlife, habitat and responsible human actions.
Aquatic Project WILD Activity Guide - explores the fascinating world of water and the aquatic habitats it supports through 48 interdisciplinary activities.
WILD in the City - a set of urban wildlife fact sheets.

The program has also developed some Wisconsin-ized versions of the activities "Changing the Land", and "Who Lives in Lake Michigan?" To order your free copies, please contact the Project WILD Program Assistant at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources at (608) 264-6280.

How Project WILD works:
Trained Project WILD facilitators conduct educator workshops throughout the state, including the International Crane Foundation's site. Workshops explain the philosophy of the program and demonstrate how the activities can be integrated into existing curricula. To date, over 22,000 formal and nonformal Wisconsin educators have been trained through WILD workshops!
