Award-Winning Conservation Education Materials
Proceeds from the Colorado Lottery, through Great Outdoors Colorado, fund all teacher training programs at Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Project WILD resources are among the most widely-used conservation and environmental education programs among educators of students in kindergarten through high school.
The curriculum has been repeatedly field tested and there are over 40 studies demonstrating its effectiveness in student learning. To learn more about the curriculum and available guides, visit the National Project WILD website.
