Celebrate National Wildlife Week
March 18-24, 2013
What do black bears, flying squirrels and cicadas all have in common? They all need trees! This year National Wildlife Week is "Branching Out for Wildlife"—celebrating trees and their importance to wildlife and people.
National Wildlife Week is National Wildlife Federation's longest-running education program designed around teaching and connecting kids to the awesome wonders of wildlife. Each year, we pick a theme and provide fun and informative educational materials, curriculum and activities for educators and caregivers to use with kids.
Ways to Celebrate National Wildlife Week
Teach About Trees - Download lesson plans, posters, trading cards and other curriculum and activities perfect for classrooms, youth groups and families to explore "tree"-mendous wildlife species.
Download the National Wildlife Week Mega-Poster - This year, the National Wildlife Week poster series can be combined into one big poster. Assemble and hang yours today!
Apply to Host a Tree Planting Event - To mark the 75th Anniversary of National Wildlife Week, we have an extra special goal: get 75,000 trees in the ground! National Wildlife Federation will provide the trees—you provide the kids.
Help Fund Tree Planting Events - In order to hit our goal of planting 75,000 trees, we need help filling the NWF tree bank to have enough trees to supply to events.
3 Ways to Help Kids Plant 75,000 Trees!
National Wildlife Federation is sponsoring schools and youth groups across the United States to plant native trees in their communities and schools. Your support is essential to this effort! Help us reach our goal of raising $150,000 and planting 75,000 trees!
Help us supply 75,000 trees to National Wildlife Week tree-planting events across the country.
A great way to help support National Wildlife Week tree-planting events is to purchase Plant-a-Tree greeting cards, jewelry, ornaments and other products from NWF's catalog.
Carry forward the name of those memorialized in a living, vital way, that grows throughout the years. A beautiful tree benefits everyone now and for generations to come. Each sponsorship includes a certificate personalized with the name of your loved one.
