Project WILD, CATCH and Wildlife Workshops

These programs for adults are led by staff instructors with the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and are offered across North Carolina. They satisfy requirements for N.C. Environmental Education Certification.

Workshop Descriptions

Aquatic WILD

In Spring of 2014, NCWRC will offer free workshops using the new Aquatic WILD activity guide.  In addition to updating existing activities, the new guide contains field investigations, In Step With STEM activity extensions, connections to wildlife careers, new activities on fish conservation and angling, and an increased focus on outdoor activities.
The 6-hour Aquatic WILD workshop counts towards CEU credits and EE Criteria I credits.  If you have previously completed an Aquatic WILD workshop, you can still receive credit for this training since the guide has undergone significant changes.  Contact the Regional Education Specialist in your area to acquire about attending a training.
