Wild Friends News, Events & Announcements


Bee Picture

It's official - the Wild Friends memorial for the 2017 legislative session, SJM 4, has been filed by our sponsor, Sen. Stewart! We'll post updates and photos as students work to create a pollinator-friendly plant labeling project for New Mexico. Go Wild Friends!

Game Night


Bee Candyland

Bee Go Fish

Wild Friends students from Wilson Middle School sponsored a game night on January 24 for parents, staff and other students. Bee Jeopardy, BeeLand (instead of Candyland), and GoFish (using a bee theme) were all part of the evening's event, and were based on bee facts that the students had researched. Does a bee gather nectar with its legs or its stomach? (Hint: think of where a pollen sack would be).

Congratulations to the Wilson students for their creative learning challenge!

Wild Friends Program celebrates 25 years, we held a fundraiser and celebration on May 19, 2016 at the UNM School of Law. We raised over $2000 to help pay for buses and t-shirts! Over 60 people attended, including students, legislators and teachers.

About the Wild Friends Program

The Wild Friends Program is an award-winning civics education program at the UNM School of Law, providing hands-on learning to students in grades 4-12 across New Mexico. In this unique program, students help draft legislation on a wildlife conservation issue and work to pass it in the New Mexico State Legislature. Students learn how our government works, and that they have a voice!
