ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS
CONNECT AND LEARN
Connecting People to Wildlife and Nature.
Center for Wildlife's mission extends to educating our community about wildlife ecology, human impacts on wildlife and critical ecosystems, and stewardship in a region facing intense pressure from development and population growth.
Our education and outreach programs offer an opportunity for Project WILD educators, live animal ambassadors, hands-on materials, and displays to foster the natural connection between people and wildlife, inspiring the conservationist within.
Center for Wildlife’s exciting team of live, non-releasable wildlife “ambassadors” trained for presentation to audiences (including owls, hawks, falcons, Virginia opossum, big brown bat, turtles and snakes), and our Environmental Educators offer a unique opportunity to bring lessons to life and see local wildlife up close and personal.
