Wildlife on WiFi: Virtual Learning Resources
The Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC) is pleased to offer Wildlife on WiFi, a virtual learning platform to provide parents, educators, and students with wildlife-focused educational lessons and activities during these challenging times. Explore 50 at home, DIY, and virtual lessons, activities, videos, storybook readings, and live wildlife webcams!
Our vision is to connect Pennsylvania residents to their state’s wildlife from anywhere. To achieve this, the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s Wildlife on WiFi program provides innovative online learning opportunities, virtual lessons and educational resources about wildlife and its conservation. The platform is comprised of three pillars:
1. The Wildlife on WiFi remote learning hub offers 50 home-based wildlife lessons and activities, nature-themed story book readings, conservation science videos, and livestream wildlife webcams.
2. Regular social media-based activities and learning opportunities on the PGC Facebook page. These include regular “PGC wildlife challenges” to engage our online community with fun, educational content.
3. Live virtual events, such as our From the Field series that brings viewers into the field with bioligists, and guest lessons from PGC educators for Pennsylvania school groups.
While PGC created these resources for Pennsylvania families and educators, we understand their applicability extends beyond the state and encourage all families working to educate their children from home to take advantage of these wildlife resources!
