Free Wildlife Magazine for Schools
The Minnesota Conservation Federation (MCF) would once again like to offer Minnesota schools a FREE subscription to our youth educational magazine called Walk on the Wild Side(WOW). The publication is designed to enhance conservation education in the classroom, which it has been doing since 1998. Targeted for the 5th and 6th grade student, the magazine focuses on Minnesota’s woods, wildlife, soil and water.
In Walk on the Wild Side, students will enjoy learning about wildlife and nature unique to Minnesota. In addition, the magazine can help science and social studies teachers meet academic standards related to ecosystems, environmental education, and human interactions with the environment. Stories include information about animals, water resources, hunting, environmentally friendly land practices, and threats to our state’s natural resources, such as pollution. Through Walk on the Wild Side, students from all school districts can gain an equally great understanding and excitement for our state’s wildlife and natural beauty, regardless of where they live.
We are now offering an online edition of the magazine only, which teachers can receive via email and share with students and parents as they wish. Walk on the Wild Side includes six issues each school year (monthly issues November thru April). To receive an electronic copy of the magazine, please send the teacher name, grade, school district, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forwarding to bringing the Minnesota outdoors to your classrooms!
