Wild Fish Conservancy is devoted to educating members of the community about wild fish, their habitats, and the ways that humans impact native fish stocks. Wild Fish Conservancy provides a variety of education resources and opportunities to increase awareness, stimulate thinking, and encourage informed decision making.
Wild Fish Conservancy offers classroom and field-based education programs focused on teaching the scientific process and encouraging elementary and secondary school students to think critically. Currently we offer three programs, the Environmental Discovery Program, the Window to Discovery Project, and the Icicle Creek Partnership.
Hands-on lessons and exploratory activities are designed to spark curiosity, to introduce students to the delicate balance of ecosystems, and to increase understanding and appreciation of the natural environment. Wild Fish Conservancy is raising the bar on educating students about the ecology of their communities and creating a foundation for future awareness, commitment, and involvement in pressing environmental issues.
Community Education and Outreach
Throughout the year Wild Fish Conservancy attends regional and local events to promote our science, education, and advocacy initiatives with the public. You might find us at research conferences, community festivals, sportsman shows, or even your local farmers market. Check out our events page to see if we will be in your area anytime soon. Stop by and see us! We’d love to tell you more about what we’re currently working on.
