Touch of the Wild 

Education Trailers

OHEC offers several different Touch of the Wild Education Trailers that travel TO the school or event. 


The trailers offer a unique education opportunity for students to explore by touching and engaging with displays such as: more than three dozen species of fish and wildlife, including full-body mounts of a wolf, turkey and beaver; shoulder mounts of deer, bison and antelope; birds and fish; antlers and horns; furs and feathers.   So much to explore!


A great way to connect with nature right on your school or event grounds and inspire future adventures. 


Trailers can be structured or self guided inquiry that is multi-disciplinary.


Reservation and use the trailers are FREE (however, donations encouraged to cover travel and maintenance costs).


Trailer comes to you, we will coordinate with you pick up and return times/locations.


Different themes to match your educational needs, reserve one or all: Fish & Wildlife #1, Fish & Wildlife #2, Wisconsin Wildlife, Wildlife of WI & the World, and the Great Lakes.
