Wickenburg Outdoor Education Partnership (WOEP)
WCF partners with:
to create, host and fund outdoor programs that meet AZ Dept. of Education science standards. Hands-on nature programs increase student interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and support AZ science standards.
Hug-A-Tree and Survive
Yavapai Search and Rescue taught WOEP members how to present the Hug-A-Tree program, a 45 minute interactive program geared for
ages 6 - 12.
WOEP was off and running with their first HAT session 6/19/17 as part of Wickenburg's summer camp.
Your donations make these fun and interactive programs possible.
Citizen Science Phenology Nature Trail
WCF is working with its partners to use existing nature trails at local venues as outdoor classrooms for citizen science phenology* programs. Grade-level appropriate activities teach scientific methods of study and data collection and encourage students to formulate and answer questions. Data collected by students becomes part of the National Phenology Network database which is used by scientists in their studies.
*Phenology: the study of changes in plants and animals over time.
Wickenburg Outdoor Education members assist Nadaburg School with educational field trips.
