Educational Materials for Parents & Teachers

Education is a key component of watchable wildlife. We believe that when people learn about wildlife and habitats, they enjoy being outdoors even more. Learning about wildlife behavior and the clues they leave behind, makes if easy to spot wildlife all  around Flagstaff. To this end, we've provided this page full of resources to help parents and teachers focus on the wildlife in our region. These resources were produced by the Arizona Game & Fish Department's "Focus Wildlife Program" and can be viewed directly by clicking here
