About this event

Join us for a walk on the wild side at the Swan Island WMA and learn about Aquatic Wild.

Aquatic Wild is part of the Project Wild series, but it focuses on issues around wetlands , aquatic wildlife, and habitats. Just like Project Wild, Aquatic Wild is an activity based, experiential learning, curriculum guide. It provides wildlife-based environmental education activities that are hands-on, easy to use, and fun. This award-winning curriculum teaches the fundamentals of wildlife ecology, conservation, and ecological issues. While also developing natural science knowledge and critical thinking skills across several different discipline areas. The activities complement existing curricula, Maine state standards, and national academic standards.

This workshop is great for classroom teachers, homeschoolers, scout leaders, nature center educators, and more.

Workshop participants will...

  • Be introduced to activities that focus on Maine-specific wildlife and habitats
  • Try example activities from the Aquatic Wild K-12 Guide
  • Spend time outside at Swan Island Wildlife Management Area
  • Get a trolley wagon tour of this historic and natural island
  • Receive a free copy of the Aquatic WILD K-12 Curriculum & Activity Guide (only available through workshops)
  • Receive teacher professional development credit hours

This event will be held outside at picnic tables so dress for the weather. We will meet at the Richmond Ferry Landing at 8:15. Please do not be late as we will board the ferry as a group.

If you have questions or concerns please reach out.
