For Educators

Teachers are welcome and encouraged to schedule class field trips to the Moapa Valley National Wildlife Refuge...


A biologist will lead teachers and students through the wildlife refuge, while sharing information about the flora and fauna found there and in the Moapa Valley. The Service can work with teachers to develop curriculum tailored to the desired focus and students' grade level. We recommend chaperones in addition to the teacher(s) who will be leading the field trip.

 

Additionally, the Service can come to the school to present information in the classroom about the wildlife refuge and the species that call it home. We have several educational materials available to use in these programs and will be happy to work with you to tailor the lesson to the unique needs of your learners.

 

To schedule a field trip or classroom presentation, contact Barbara Michel, the visitor services/environmental education specialist, at 775-725-3417 ext. 101, or email barbara_michel@fws.gov. Please contact us at least one month in advance of your planned activity.
