Lessons & Resources

 

The Uinta County Conservation District has a number of natural resource and conservation education lessons for your classroom, homeschool group or youth group. Lessons taught by UCCD are free of charge, can be adjusted to meet individual requests.

 

We strive to teach hands-on, standard-based lessons in (or out) of the classroom focusing on the natural resources and agriculture issues here in Uinta County. We also have interactive lessons and resources to promote world, national and regional activities such as National Soil and Water Stewardship Week, World Water Monitoring Day, Wyoming Ag in the Classroom, Earth Day and Arbor Day.

 

Review the lists below and contact us to schedule a lesson. If you have a different lesson idea or request please let us know. Our lessons can be adjusted for grades PreK-12. Lessons can be modified to fit your classroom needs and time schedules.

 

In addition, we partner with other agencies and professionals with expertise in a wide range of natural resource and conservation areas. We can refer you to great resources if you're interested in other topics.

We teach lessons from the following natural resource and conservation education manuals. All the lessons in the manuals can be prepared to fit your needs.

Project Learning Tree is a widely used Prek-12 environmental education program designed to promote stewardship and advance environmental literacy. The activity guides contain numerous interactive, age appropriate lessons that can stand alone or be used as a full curriculum to teach about our environment. Lessons specific to Wyoming make up the Exploring Wyoming’s Natural Environments supplemental activity guide.
