In Canada a Project Wild Activity Guide has been developed by the
Canadian Wildlife Federation based on materials developed by the
Western Regional Environmental Education Council and the Western
Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies. The Canadian Activity
Guide was developed under agreement with WREEC. The courses and
materials are made available through the various provincial
departments or ministries of natural resources. I took the course in
fall through the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources. The course
and the book combine to give Scouters many ideas about how to
introduce environmental concepts into their groups while having a heck
of a lot of fun. We have played Oh Deer, and How many Bears can live
in this forest. The Bear game worked well for our Bear night theme.
In Canada you might also contact the Canadian Wildlife federation for
more information at 613- 721-2286.
Its a great course and I recommend it highly to all Scouters!
