Wild Friends News, Events & Announcements
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!
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!

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!
