Living Green Tip ~ Schoolyard Habitats June 11, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Home & Garden, Nature.

Huey,-Dewey-And-LouieAfter you’ve set up a Backyard Habitat for Ranger Rick and his friends, turn your attention to the schoolyard!

To help reconnect today’s children to the outdoors, the National Wildlife Federation assists schools in developing outdoor classrooms called Schoolyard Habitats®,where educators and students learn how to attract and support local wildlife.

These wildlife habitats become places where students not only learn about wildlife species and ecosystems, but also outdoor classrooms where they hone their academic skills and nurture their innate curiosity and creativity.

To learn more:  NWF Schoolyard Habitats

Check out NWF Educator Resources including:  Schoolyard Habitat Resources and FUNDING resources! And don’t forget the Great American Backyard Campout ~ Saturday, June 26th.

Thanks for stopping by, Libby.

I love spreading the word about outdoor activities for kids ~ hiking, camping, gardening, and creating wildlife habitats.

We had a NWF certified backyard habitat in Maryland and loved seeing all our furry and feathered friends stopping by for food, water, and shelter, including the raccoons that would knock on the sliding glass door for service if the bird feeder was empty. : )
