Educational Boxes

The Wyoming Ecological Services Office has several educational boxes available for teachers to use in a classroom setting. The materials were chosen and written to provide accurate information while illustrating the relationship between the animal/ecosystem and humans. Activities in each box allow teachers to evaluate and choose activities appropriate for the ages and abilities of their students. Educational boxes available and more information on those boxes can be found below.

Box reservations are limited to one week at any one time. To reserve a box please contact our office:
