It’s been a fruitful fall, with NDOW’s wildlife education program giving presentations at Walnut Recreation Center, Rhodes Ranch, Red Rock, Griffith Elementary, and Girl Scouts, and appearing at the World of Girls, Henderson Trails Day, Gold Butte Days, and Nevadaween.
There’s a chance to learn about the desert tortoise curriculum at the Math and Science Conference in Las Vegas, January 18 & 19, 2013. This is a new curriculum aimed at schools with desert tortoise habitat, with NDOW and Tortoise Group as partners.
Educators, the Aquatic Project Wild (aquatic wildlife) workshop has been rescheduled to Saturday, February 9, 2013. Free, but no PDE credit. Please contact Margie Klein
Finally, hope to see you at the International Sportsmen’s Expo, to be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, February 28 through March 3. NDOW will be hosting the “Kids’ Camp” again at their booth.
