GAME COMMISSION OFFERS WORKSHOPS for EDUCATORS

GAME COMMISSION OFFERS WORKSHOPS for EDUCATORS

Registration deadlines for professional-development courses approach.

HARRISBURG – Schools might soon be letting out, but educators and others who work with youth have a chance to continue their learning through wildlife-focused workshops that also fulfill mandates set forth by the federal No Child Left Behind Act.

Project WILD aims to provide a wildlife-based conservation education that fosters responsible action. It’s one of the most widely used conservation and environmental education programs among educators, and the activities easily can be incorporated into almost any classroom curriculum.

Theresa Alberici coordinates the program in Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Bureau of Information and Education. She works closely with the Pennsylvania Department of Education as well as conservation and environmental education organizations throughout the state and the country. Her dedication to wildlife and environmental awareness, along with her talents in creating curricula and ability to work with educators have earned her recognition from the state Department of Education and Pennsylvania’s conservation education community. 
“Educators leave Project WILD with a renewed appreciation of wildlife and are excited about how they’re going to share what they’ve learned with their students,” Alberici said.  “This year, wildlife agencies nationwide celebrated 1 million educators ‘Gone WILD.’ More than 1 million educators have been trained in the program since Project WILD originated in 1983. 
“Project WILD isn’t about teaching kids what to think about wildlife; it’s about teaching kids how to think about wildlife and giving them the skills they need to become responsibly active citizens who recognize the importance of wildlife and the environment.”
