Wyoming Game and Fish Department Plans Wild About Oreo Camp
CHEYENNE– Wyoming educators and youth leaders will have an opportunity to take the outdoors in to the classroom at the WILD About OREO Educators camp at the Whiskey Mountain camp near Dubois, June 22-25.
The application deadline is April 25. The camp begins Sunday, June 22 at 5 p.m., and participants will receive instruction on a wide range of outdoor activities that can be incorporated in the classroom.
OREO coordinator Zac Sexton said workshops provide instruction on teaching a variety of outdoor skills. “Workshop subjects include photography, fly-tying, tackle crafting, canoeing, outdoor survival, shotgun skills and archery, taught by Game and Fish staff,” Sexton said. “Other activities include the Aldo Leopold Project, a photography slide show, panel discussion on current Game and Fish topics and a Crime Scene Investigations demonstration by the Game and Fish forensics lab.”
Sexton said participants can select the workshops they would like to use in their classroom, camps, or other educational programs.
“The camp has received outstanding reviews from educators throughout the state,” Sexton said.
Sexton expects more of the same at this year’s camp.
“The Game and Fish Department looks forward to this unique opportunity to work with Wyoming’s educators on implementing conservation education in the classroom,” Sexton said.
