will be celebrating the
of National Wildlife Week. This event was first observed
in 1938 under the name "National
Wildlife Restoration Week". Past
spokespeople of National Wildlife Week include
Walt Disney, Shirley
Temple, and Robert Redford.
To commemorate this important event, we have invited
children, teens, adults and seniors to participate by planting
200 trees on Phase 2 of the Trail. The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail
supports National Wildlife Federation's programs that counteract
nature deficit disorder in children by encouraging parents and
other caring adults to help children spend more time outdoors every
day. This continuation of The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail is made possible
through a grant provided by U.S.Fish and Wildlife, "Partners for
Fish and Wildlife" Program.
As a special bonus, while we're out on the Trail
planting trees, we will be entertained by the Flat
Mountain Band from Orlando. Cathy first heard them at
the Tibet Butler Preserve during their Backyard Habitat Festival
and when they found out what we're doing out here, they accepted
our invitation to play during this special Trailday.
good friends, good food, live music, and a special opportunity
to save our favorite threatened bird, we look forward to seeing
all supporters of The Florida Scrub-Jay and companion species.
Please RSPV, or call 352-429-5566
with how many are in your party. Of course, you're
invited to bring a dish for the table.
