NATIONAL WILDLIFE WEEK
March 16-20, 2009
Get involved in National Wildlife Week, a time to honor wildlife of all forms and to instill a love of nature, nature both big and small.
Wildlife Week started in 1938 and since then has been important in wildlife conservation, bringing awareness of this issue to people of all ages.
As the NWF web page says, “Research shows that families connected to nature raise healthier kids and inspire a life-long appreciation of the environment”. They also say that a daily Green Hour improves one’s physical, mental and emotional well-being, and is especially important these days for kids who spend hours in front of electronic media.
It seems obvious, doesn’t it? Think how great you feel after walking outside, having a picnic, going to a park or zoo etc.
Wildlife Watch offers all kinds of activities and suggestions,
In the spirit of Wildlife Week, I’ll share our recent visit to the Butterfly House in St Louis. In my opinion, butterflies are creatures that are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face and an appreciation of how delicate and beautiful nature is. (See upcoming post—soon)
