Did you know that it's National Wildlife Week? From March 13 through the 20th, the National Wildlife Federation will be celebrating wildlife, with each day featuring a special group:
Monday – Wildlife that Fly
Tuesday – Wildlife that Climb and Dig
Wednesday – Wildlife that Swim
Thursday – Wildlife that Hop and Leap
Friday – Wildlife that Run and Crawl
From Eco-Smart Parent:
National Wildlife Week is a signature event of National Wildlife Federation’s Be Out There™ campaign, an initiative to connect families and communities to nature, raise healthier kids, instill a conservation ethic, and inspire a life-long appreciation of wildlife and the environment. Held annually since 1938, National Wildlife Week is National Wildlife Federation’s longest-running education program.
Celebrate National Wildlife Week by doing what comes naturally. Whatever you do—at home, school or play—do it outdoors and have fun! Climb trees, chase butterflies, dig in the dirt and celebrate nature. You’ll become healthier, happier and more connected to the world around you.
