California Waterfowl believes strongly in youth conservation education so the future leaders of today can protect the waterfowl and wetlands of tomorrow. We want to see more curriculums focused on the outdoors in classrooms across the state.
To that end, we provide a number of supplemental materials for teachers to use in conjunction with our outdoor education presentations or to use on their own. Below you can find a variety of worksheets, lessons and presentations for use in the classroom.
