Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge Pilots New Outreach Program on Biomes

            ORP King-Wrenn presented a newly developed program about New Mexico’s biomes at the Zimmerly Elementary School in Socorro, New Mexico on 01/30/06.

Four distinct biomes come together within the Refuge’s boundaries providing a diversity of habitats for a wide variety of wildlife. A biome study is the focal point of the Refuge’s onsite EE.

The outreach program, tested on 22 5th graders, is a new addition to the Refuge’s EE offerings. The 2 hour program meets 8 New Mexico science benchmarks with a variety of hands-on math and science projects. Lessons used in the program can be found in the Refuge’s newly developed teachers guide to the Chihuahuan Desert.
