Project Wild Workshop, April 8th

If you are not trained in Project WILD, this is your chance! Friday, April 8th at Southeastway Park, 9-3:30pm, I will be doing a training in Project WILD. Project WILD is an international environmental education program dedicated to facilitating an understanding of basic wildlife and ecology concepts. Using standards-based hands-on activities, this workshop will focus on the native Indiana wildlife that spends most of its time on land. Participants will receive the Project WILD Terrestrial guide as part of the workshop. Upon completion, participants should know more about Indiana wildlife, be able to discuss humans’ roles in wildlife conservation, and be comfortable replicating workshop activities in their own education settings.

What will we do? All kinds of super fun games and activities that you can take with you. If the weather is nice, we will be outside most of the day. And, Southeastway boasts a nice array of spring wildflowers, so we will definitely be checking those out.

To register, contact the Natural Resources Education Center at 317-562-1338 or at by  There is a fee of $20 for this workshop. Please make checks payable to the Indiana Natural Resources Foundation.

Southeastway Park is located at 5624 South Carroll Rd, New Palestine, IN 46163. We are part of Indianapolis Parks and Recreation.
