The Arizona Game and Fish Department Homeschool Program is part of the Focus Wild Arizona environmental education program. Our goal is to provide enriching field experiences for homeschool families that will immerse students of all ages in real science, allowing them to interact with department biologists.
Last year students participated in the following hands-on, educational field activities: bald eagle banding at Lake Pleasant, bat viewing, elk collaring in northern Arizona, night herping, urban bird watching and desert tortoise monitoring.
The Homeschool Program is funded through The Heritage Fund, a voter-passed initiative, which started in 1990 to further conservation efforts in the state, including protecting endangered species, educating children about wildlife, helping urban residents to better coexist with wildlife, and creating new opportunities for outdoor recreation. Funding comes from Arizona Lottery ticket sales.
