 Educators of children in grades k-12 are invited to a special Project WILD workshop
 at Northfield Mountain Recreation and Environmental Center.  Project WILD is an
 award-winning interdisciplinary, conservation, and environmental education program
 that emphasizes wildlife, people, and the environment. The program guide contains
 over 100 activities for K-12 educators and is correlated to Next Generation Science
 Standards Student Performance Expectations.   We will model fun and engaging
 activities that teach about a variety of Massachusetts mammals and winter ecology.
 Taking place both indoors and outdoors, we'll track animals in the field and learn
 different track patterns as well as activities to teach about tracking.  Workshop
 participants will receive a copy of the Project WILD Activity Guide, natural history
 information about local mammals, 6 hours towards PDPs as well as a certificate of
 completion. The workshop will be taught by Kim Noyes, Education Coordinator at
 Northfield
 Mountain and Patti Steinman, Education Coordinator for Massachusetts Audubon's
 Connecticut River Valley Sanctuaries.   Please bring snowshoes if you have them, or
 they are available to rent at Northfield.  To register or for more information
 please contact Kim Noyes at kim.noyes@gdfsuezna.com or (413) 659-4462.
