Spieles Certified to Lead Workshops for Projects Wild, Learning Tree, and WET

February 2002
Beth Spieles has completed the Minnesota facilitator training for Projects Wild, Learning Tree, and WET. The idea for these nationally coordinated curricula was born in the 1970s out of the Western Regional Environmental Education Council, Inc. (now the Council for Environmental Education) and its interest in partnering educators with natural resource professionals. Years of development, testing, and revision of the curricula have continued to the present day. The latest curricular guides contain hundreds of activities geared to specific levels in the K-12 arena. Activities span disciplines including science, social science, government, mathematics, language arts, art, music, physical education, and health. Each activity has been correlated to the Minnesota Graduation Standards.
