Celebrating National Wildlife Week

The theme for National Wildlife Week 2013 is “Branching Out For Wildlife” and today, day 3, focuses on the tree trunk. Many species, including great horned owls, use cavities in tree trunks as places to seek refuge and raise their young. Learn more ways that trees benefit wildlife and people >>

Also, celebrate National Wildlife Week by donating to our tree bank today! You can help us reach our goal of planting 75,000 trees this year>>

National Wildlife Week is National Wildlife Federation’s longest-running education program designed around teaching and connecting kids to the awesome wonders of wildlife.
