Water is important to all living things--people and wildlife alike. This year during National Wildlife Week, March 17-23, National Wildlife Federation is helping kids and adults explore the important role that water plays in the lives of wildlife and people across the country. With the theme of "Wildlife and Water--From the Mountains to the Rivers to the Oceans" National Wildlife Week will give families, educators and community groups the chance to connect kids with wildlife and explore the world around them.
We will be learning about wildlife such as lake sturgeon, aquatic insects, beaver, frogs, horseshoe crabs, wood ducks and even plants that have a very important relationship with water like cranberries, wild rice and water tupelo. Each day we will explore wildlife that live in, use or depend on water--whether in a vernal pool, a stream, a marsh, a lake or an estuary.
National Wildlife Federation will provide resources for families, schools, individuals and organizations to participate in National Wildlife Week. These resources include a poster, educational webinar, lesson plans, activities, event-planning tips, a calendar of events, and suggested ways to take action for wildlife. National Wildlife Week will give youth and families a chance to celebrate wildlife and water by going fishing, cleaning up a local stream, exploring a pond or planting a tree.
Join on us for our week-long celebration of wildlife! http://www.nwf.org/wildlifeweek
