The Hobbit


Hey Kids, Parents, & Teachers!

As the education partner for the film, we hope the popularity of the books and its themes of courage and nature’s beauty will inspire moviegoers and Tolkien fans to do something to make our Earth a greener place.

Search Wild Places!

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest that takes him and his companions into the Wild! Enter a zip code, city or state and NWF's Nature Find will show you parks, campgrounds, nature centers, zoos, and other places to explore the outdoors.

Start Your Own Unexpected Journey!

Whether you go to a park in the city or the wilderness or anywhere in between, you can have a great time!. You can Be Out There too! See how to make being outdoors an easy, fun and healthy part of everyday life.

Take actions to “green your shire:”

Bilbo and the other Hobbits call the place where they live "The Shire." They love to garden and to grow food. Learn how to garden for wildlife where you live with NWF's Certified Wildlife Habitat® and Schoolyard Habitats programs.
