Highlighted Curriculum

The New Mexico Wildlife Center, with support from the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish’s Share with Wildlife program, developed a curriculum in 2021 that focuses on the development of pollinator-friendly gardens in portable containers on school grounds. The curriculum includes multiple lessons that review the key elements of a garden (water, soil, plants, and animals) and also incorporates exposures to live animals via presentations using Animal Ambassadors maintained by the Center.
