Natural Resource Programs
Educators!  Come Get WET and WILD at August Workshop

Educators!  Do you need some ready-to-go activities to supplement a lesson that are field-tested, award-winning, and student-proven fun and effective?  Are you a Master Naturalist needing training hours?  Come get WET and WILD at a free workshop sponsored by the Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District.

The award-winning Project WET and Project WILD Aquatic programs will be presented on August 14, 2018 from 8:30am-3:30pm, at Merry Lea Environmental Learning Center, Wolf Lake.  Participants will come away with two amazing curricula, Project WET and Project Aquatic WILD.  The WET guide contains more than 90 broad-based water resource activities that are hands-on, easy to use and FUN!  Participants will also receive the Project WILD Aquatic Curriculum and Activity Guide, which contains an additional 50 activities focused on the fascinating world of water and the aquatic habitats it supports.

The goal of this workshop is to facilitate and promote awareness, appreciation, knowledge, and stewardship of water resources and its inhabitants through the program’s classroom-ready teaching aids.   It includes many water related topics including atmospheric, surface and ground water, chemistry, water history, watersheds, wetlands, aquatic wildlife, water quality, water use, water management, as well as, wildlife populations, habitats and ecosystems, adaptations and biodiversity.

WET and WILD activities are designed to satisfy the goals of educational programs by complimenting existing curricula, rather than displacing or adding more concepts.  These activities provide many opportunities to address curricula objectives and educational standards.  They are interdisciplinary, designed for students in grades K-12, and are well suited for use in formal and non-formal education settings.

There is no charge for this workshop, however pre-registration is required.  For additional information about this workshop or to register, contact Darci Zolman at the Kosciusko County Soil and Water Conservation District office at 574-267-7445, x118 or via e-mail at darci.zolman@in.nacdnet.net.
