About the Program

Overview:

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department hosts a 4 day professional development camp for educators to learn fun and simple ways to get students outdoors and teach them about wildlife and habitat at the Whiskey Mountain Conservation Camp near Dubois.
This camp will offer two separate tracks. The first track is a Project WILD curriculum workshop, which offers the opportunity to get your hands on one of the nation's most widely-used conservation education curriculum guides, which provides easy-to-use lessons about wildlife & conservation of natural resources. Participants will also experience ready-to-use, transferable tasks emphasizing data collection using real, actual, simple science equipment and hands-on outdoor learning. The second track will allow participants to become certified hunter education instructors, with the intent of allowing them to bring hunter education into their schools. Participants from both tracks will come away with a better understanding of the Wyoming Game & Fish department's role in managing wildlife and habitat in the state and future career opportunities for students.
