Teaching Trunks

Use one of our eight different teaching trunks (pdf), each with a unique wildlife or conservation theme that will enhance learning in your classroom. Trunk contents are designed to provide classroom teachers with engaging, hands-on activities that will supplement your curriculum

Teaching Trunks are available to check out (pdf) for a $15 fee for a two-week period. A $25 refundable deposit, per trunk, is required when picking up your trunk. A fee will be charged if the trunk is not returned by the due date, or if there is damage to the contents.
