Teacher Workshops are scheduled periodically throughout the year at Utah’s Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City and other cities throughout the state.
Growing Up WILD is an early childhood education program that builds on children’s sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them.Through a wide range of activities and experiences, Growing Up WILD provides an early foundation for developing positive impressions about the natural world and lifelong social and academic skills. Teachers receive a curriculum guide— Growing Up WILD: Exploring Nature with Young Children. It is written especially for early childhood educators of children ages 3-7. They will also receive additional supporting materials for their classrooms. Growing Up WILD is a multi-award winning program having received the 2009 Family Choice Award and the 2011 Renewable Natural Resource Foundation Excellence in Journalism Award.
