Project WILD: Connecting Children & Youth with Nature
Alison Thomas, Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department
Project WILD’s mission is to help students learn how to think, not what to think, about wildlife and the environment. All
– Provide structured nature-based activities for their students so the students feel comfortable outdoors;
– Understand how to meet educational and developmental goals and standards for their students by using the activities included in the Curriculum Guide;
– Determine if the learning objectives for each activity in the Curriculum Guide were met for the students by using the specified assessment methods; and,
– Be motivated to go outside with students!
