Observing wildlife in their natural habitat is the truest form of animal/human coexistence and such a rewarding experience. This project will show you where local wildlife live, how they live, what actions affect their habitats and how to design a wildlife improvement project.

In this project, you’ll:

  • Observe wildlife and wildlife habitats
  • Go on silent hikes and forest crawls to learn about animal habitats
  • Learn how animals have adapted to their changing landscapes
  • Work on a project that will make your community a better place for wildlife to live
