Use this Weekend To Wildlife Watch

from Wildlife Promise

Wildlife Week 2008Earth Day is over but we’ve still got this weekend to celebrate  National Wildlife Week. National Wildlife Federation has been holding this annual event for 70 years to celebrate wildlife and help people connect with nature. This year, we’re encouraging everyone to get outside and look for wildlife by participating in WILDLIFE WATCH.

How it Works:

1.  Download a checklist of species for your state.

2.  Find a place to look for wildlife in your community.

3.  Spend time outside looking for the plants and animals on the list.

4.  Tell us about what you saw and add your sighting to our map.

Here are some great animals to watch for!
