Upcoming Teacher and Classroom Programs


August 1, 2015

Welcome to the 2015-16 school year. We hope that you found both rest and inspiration this summer. We have some very exciting educator workshops planned for the school year. Below you can find information on some of the more immediate ones. In addition, there are some details on our sport fishing program. Enjoy!

Using Cameras to Study Wildlife

The advent of digital cameras has opened up new avenues for studying wildlife. Today, the digital camera is one of the most widely used technology tools in wildlife management. In this unique workshop, teachers will have the opportunity to learn about ways cameras are used in wildlife management while creating some relevant classroom materials.

This workshop is taking place in the Tucson area on Saturday, August 22.

Learn about Our New and Updated Resource Trunks

One of the most popular educational materials that we provide are the resource trunks. Sometimes called bone boxes, these trunks have a variety of tactile resources that you can bring into the classroom. We have spent some time updating these materials and are very excited to share these changes with you! In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to experience the materials from at least four of our loaner boxes.

This workshop is taking place in the Phoenix area on Saturday, September 19.

Workshop Helps Integrate Science and Social Studies

The struggle to preserve America's wildlife is an amazing tale of national and natural history. It is a story of what we can accomplish when we work together toward a common goal. And it provides an engaging context to integrate science, language arts and American history in the classroom. Join us for a day-long teacher workshop and learn how to bring the history of wildlife management into your classroom.

This workshop is taking place in the Phoenix area on Saturday, October 24. The content and resources are geared toward secondary teachers. However, all are welcome to register. There is a $25 fee to participate.

School Group Sport Fishing Program

We are pleased to announce that the application process for our "Sport Fishing Education Program" is now open. All Arizona educators who work with grades three and above are welcome to apply. Because the demand is often higher than we can accommodate, a random drawing will be held to fill the number of available spots. If selected, your school will receive an hour-long classroom presentation and a 3-4 hour hands-on fishing event at a nearby body of water.

For more information and to submit your application, click here. But hurry: applications are only accepted until August 14!
