Participants will explore the national award-winning Projects WILD and Aquatic WILD activity guides. All curriculum materials are backed by sound educational practices and theory, and represent the work of many professionals within the fields of education and natural resource management from across the country.

Participants should also bring a day pack, water bottle, insect repellent, sunscreen and hat/sunglasses. Activities will be mildly strenuous.
