"Restore and Explore"
The Florida Scrub-Jay Trail During National Wildlife Week, (April 19-27).

Florida Scrub-Jay TrailNWF logoChildren, teens and adults are invited to connect with nature at the Florida Scrub-Jay Trail on Saturday, April 26, 2008
from 8:00 to 11:00am

Participants will explore the Trail in search of the federally threatened Florida scrub-jay, ancient gopher tortoises and other threatened and endangered animal and plant species. Families are encouraged to enjoy the sights and sounds of spring as they participate in the restoration of the scrub-jay habitat by planting scrub oak trees on the Trail.

This nationwide event marks the 70th anniversary of National Wildlife Week, which 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.

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.
The Trail is being developed to identify and restore Florida Scrub-Jay habitat across the entire state of Florida.Florida Scrub-Jay TrailFlorida Scrub-Jay TrailFlorida Scrub-Jay Trail





This effort relies heavily on volunteer community support to accomplish this goal, and provides environmental educational opportunities for children and adults alike, while
helping to save the scrub-jay, Florida's only endemic bird.
