Conservation Education Program in Kentucky Schools
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources (KDFWR) has Conservation Educators (CE’s) who present conservation programs in Kentucky schools. CE’s are professionals in their field and are trained in the instruction of outdoor skills and certified in teaching programs such as hunter education, fishing, archery, and Project WILD.
All public, private, and home schools are eligible to receive our in-school programs free of charge. Programs are designed for students in grades 4, 5, and 6 and cover a wide range of topics ranging from Kentucky wildlife, outdoor safety, and current issues facing our environment. Educators develop programs in accordance with the Kentucky Academic Standards. CE’s also represent KDFWR at school or community events such as career days, safety days, and camp fairs and can be a great tool for any type of youth education event.
Schools that enroll in our Conservation Education program will receive 4-5 programs during the school year. Programs are given during the months of October, November, January, February and March. December and April are used for make-up programs. Each monthly program is 35 to 45 minutes in length and the class size ranges from 15 to 200, depending upon school enrollment and room capacity.
Please contact your local Conservation Educator for more information about Conservation Programs. General questions about our conservation education program or camps may be directed to Emily Hogue at 502.892.4491, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
