Welcome to Wildlife Management 10/20! Below, I have listed important sites for you to become very familiar with and why:
- WordPress (the same blog site that I am using) – I require you to start your own wordpress blog – this will be a site that we will use from here on out for all of your science classes. You will be required to make a page for Biology (I will show you how to do this).
- Snapchat – search cooperscience – you will see a photo of Tyson!
- Read over the rubric very carefully!
In this course we will focus on the following foundational objectives:
- To demonstrate safety practices while engaged in outdoor experiences.
