Interesting video from an eagle's nest in Ashtabula County. One of the eggs just hatched. Take a look inside the nest !
Here are some ideas
Learn about nature
The Great Monarch Migration (Social Studies Activity):
Learn about the monarch butterfly and create a map showing its remarkable journey from Canada to Mexico.
The Case of the Missing Sea Turtle (Science Activity):
Become a junior investigator tasked with solving a mystery by placing clues of climate change in order.
Conservation in the Classroom (Virtual Learning):
Bring conservation and science to life with virtual events featuring our WWF experts, who share stories about protecting species and habitats around the world.
Express yourself with art
Get crafty with animal-themed art activities like Paw to Paw, The Umbrella Effect, and Watch Your Noodles for Elephants’ Sake.
Create a poster for your refrigerator or wall with animal coloring pages. Go one step further and learn about the animal and its habitat with our dedicated species web pages.
Spend time in your backyard
Use the SEEK app by iNaturalist to see what’s living in your own backyard and complete the Biodiversity Audit activity.
Create a garden filled with plants that attract bees, butterflies, and other pollinators (try the Origami Butterfly Planters activity!) or create a backyard wildlife habitat, such as bird houses and bug hotels
Unfortunately Cows and Plows 2020 has been cancelled ! Hopefully 2021 the program will resume.
