Educator Day at the International Wolf Symposium

Date: 
Saturday, October 13, 2018

The International Wolf Center is a leader in providing wolf education. Join us for our International Wolf Symposium Educator Day to bring relevant, science-based activities and knowledge to your students. Registration for the day includes: breakfast, lunch, daily break refreshments, materials and a copy of the International Wolf Center’s Gray Wolves Gray Matter curriculum.

Learn about resources and education enhancement opportunities that are available for educators from various wolf education organizations during the Regional Resources for Information group session. Experience a virtual field trip through the International Wolf Center and discover what resources are available that provide hands-on tactile experiences. Visit booths and displays from exhibitors to network, find resources and available education guides.  Then, join a panel discussion focused on challenges to wolf education around the world. Hear wolf educators discuss their challenges and have an opportunity to ask them questions and participate in the discussion.

You'll also participate in a break-out session designed specifically for the age range you educate. Groups will be divided into K-5th grade and 6th – 12th grade. Learn a specific wolf education activity and receive the materials to lead it.  After lunch, attend a panel discussion on various perspectives on wolf depredation control on livestock. This discussion will include the balance required in managing wolves, how conflicts are handled and a perspective on the desired outcome of managing depredation.  Conclude your day by choosing between various concurrent sessions with topic categories such as wolf ecology, wildlands and ecosystems, wolf conservation and education and others.
