Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest for Educators

Looking for a virtually-facilitated opportunity focused on Colorado ecology and civics to engage your middle and high school students this fall? Captain Planet Foundation is offering the Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest as a series of free, direct-to-student virtual project-based learning videos that challenge students to unpack the complexities of the Colorado Gray Wolf Reintroduction Initiative on the 2020 Colorado ballot in November. These videos will directly address several key life science and civics education standards. 

Interested in learning more? Register for the Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest through your free educator account here. Be sure to sign-up for a free educator account and ADD the Rocky Mountain Wolf Quest to get updates and information about these videos. For questions or concerns, please reach out at projecthero@captainplanetfdn.org or laura.arndt1@globalgreenstem.com
