The Habitats of North Dakota program was designed to provide teachers with materials to teach students about the importance of each of five major habitats in the state. Each of the habitats (prairie, woodlands, wetlands, riparian areas, and badlands) are described separately in their own publication. The books describe the habitat, the wildlife commonly found, and the overall importance to the ecosystem as well as what can be done to protect these important places. Each book also includes comprehension and critical thinking exercises. Teachers can request training on the habitat books through the Game and Fish Department.
