Project WILD and Aquatic WILD are award-winning curriculum guides designed to help educators incorporate wildlife and conservation into their classrooms or programs. Lessons are interdisciplinary and promote critical thinking. Additionally, lessons can easily be used to meet Nebraska State Educational Standards for math, science, language arts and social studies.

Both Project WILD and Aquatic WILD teach lessons such as life cycles, habitats, wildlife populations, biodiversity, land management, and human-wildlife interactions. Project WILD focuses on terrestrial habitats including prairie, forests, urban and farm land. Aquatic WILD focuses on aquatic habitats including rivers, lakes, oceans and wetlands.

In Nebraska, Project WILD workshops provide training for both Project WILD and Aquatic WILD guides. Participants of Project WILD workshops can expect to learn not only content knowledge but also skills to implement activities into their setting. Workshops provide participants with both the Project WILD and Aquatic WILD guide.

Project WILD is supported by the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission through the use of funds from hunting licenses and fees.
