Flying WILD is a Project WILD conservation education curriculum for middle-school students sponsored in Georgia by the Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division.
Flying WILD introduces middle-school students to bird conservation through school bird festivals and hands-on classroom activities. Flying WILD helps teachers by providing interdisciplinary, standards-based lessons that engage students in real-world learning. By participating in Flying WILD activities, students will gain opportunities to learn and lead. Half of the activities in Flying WILD are designed to involve students as leaders.
Service learning is also an essential part of Flying WILD. The Flying WILD guide includes suggestions, instructions, and resources for doing service leaning activities, such as conducting a school bird festival and participating in habitat improvement projects. Flying WILD has the potential to help capture the hearts and minds of middle-school students in Georgia by harnessing their natural fascination with birds.
