Welcome to Nature WY!

Wyoming PBS has partnered with Science Kids out of Sheridan, WY to create Nature WY, a digital educational series focused on outdoor science and nature and developed for children 6-8 years old (or really, ALL learners from 2 to 102!). Each episode has an activity guide for use at home and a lesson plan aligned to state and common core standards. Topics in the first season include watersheds, macroinvertebrates, catching insects, becoming a keen observer using all your senses, and insect habitats. The videos are available on this page, at, and on 

Season 2 was filmed during the summer of 2022 and is scheduled to release in spring of 2023. Topics tackled in Season 2 include pollinators, water ways, food webs, ground erosion and animal camouflage adaptations.
