Connect with NATURE in Your Neighborhood!

April 21 thru April 29 is National Wildlife Week.

Children, teens and adults are invited to observe NATIONAL WILDLIFE WEEK by getting outdoors, learning about and helping the wildlife in their neighborhoods and beyond, April 21–29, 2007. 


In partnership with Youth Service America, young people 11 to 18 can make a difference for wildlife in their community when they take on environmental service projects during National and Global Youth Service Day, April 20–22. Projects will challenge youth to address global warming, undertake habitat restoration and become more aware of the ecology in their own areas. Tips and suggestions are available online at and 


The National Wildlife Watch involves everyone from children, parents and caregivers, grandparents and mentors to schools, outdoor and sporting groups and others. Participants will download a list of wildlife and natural phenomena to observe in their backyards, neighborhoods, communities and other special places. They will then report back by posting their findings on the NWF website. Participants will be challenged to watch for designated endangered species in their locale.
