  • EarthEcho Water Challenge
    The EarthEcho Water Challenge (formerly World Water Monitoring Challenge) is an international program that runs annually from March 22 (the United Nations World Water Day) through December and equips anyone to protect the water resources we depend on every day. The EarthEcho Water Challenge builds public awareness and involvement in protecting water resources around the world by engaging citizens to conduct basic monitoring of their local waterbodies.  Contact your local District for more information. 
     

  • Wyoming Ag in the Classroom
    The Wyoming Stewardship Project (WSP) was inspired by our desire to share an understanding and sense of stewardship of our vast resources with all Wyoming students. Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom (WAIC), in partnership with the Wyoming Department of Education (WDE), will work with resource leaders to identify key learning concepts in agriculture, energy and minerals, natural resources, outdoor recreation and tourism for the development of project based units. The purpose of these units is to support students’ ability to make informed decisions for the state of Wyoming as adults. This project is meant to promote the highest quality of life for Wyoming citizens. The WSP has the ability to empower our students. The lessons will be aligned to Wyoming standards and will bring a real-world perspective to Math, Science, Social Studies and Language Art classes.  For more information on the Wyoming Stewardship Project, visit the Wyoming Ag in the Classroom website.

  • Project Food, Land and People
    Food, Land & People (FLP), established in 1988, is based in Chandler, Arizona. Food, Land & People is a nonprofit organization committed to helping people of all ages better understand the interrelationships among agriculture, the environment, and people of the world. Food, Land & People's science- and social sciences-based curriculum, Resources for Learning, currently serves Pre-K to 12th grade students throughout the United States. The curriculum consists of 55 hands-on lessons, developed and tested by more than a thousand educators. The subjects range from environmental science and stewardship ("Don't Use It All Up!") to human populations and land use issues ("What Will the Land Support?")

  • Wyoming Section Society for Range Management
    The Wyoming Section Society for Range Management (WY SRM), continues the traditions of WyRED at locations that provide education, relaxation and FUN! 2017 is a step into an updated and improved camp; the Conservation Districts across Northeast Wyoming and WY SRM teamed up to celebrate 22 years on June 5-9, 2017 at Mallo Camp. WY SRM held the first Range Camp in 1976 at Tensleep, WY. Range camp changed its name to WYRED-Wyoming Youth Resource Education Days, in 1996 at Buffalo, WY. WYRED has occurred every year since. Youth and Adults alike can attend the week long camp that focuses on all aspects of natural resource (range) management. Professionals/experts volunteer from across Wyoming to teach about plant identification and anatomy, soils, wildlife and resource management, water/hydrology, GPS and map skills, and much more. The week is spent on the ground working with local ranches and seeing best management practices (conservation) at work. WYRED is hosted in a different area of the state each year. Moving the camp provides a wide range of experiences and exposes participants to different vegetation and resource concerns that exist across the great state of Wyoming. 2018—Central—Lander Area; 2019—SE—Lingle/Wheatland Area; 2020—SW—Evanston Area.
