NEW! Discover New Mexico: Wildlife Education

Welcome to Discover New Mexico:
The Conservation Education team offers a new curriculum focused on New Mexico wildlife and wildlife management and their connections to many academic content areas. The curriculum is for upper elementary through middle school grade levels, and all lessons are correlated to the Common Core State Standards and current New Mexico Public Education Department Science Standards.

We are seeking educator reviews of these initial lessons. If you are interested, please contact us.
