April 26, 2008 Trailday Newsletter                       see more photos of the day
Hello Friends,

This Saturday, April 26th from 8am to 11am will be a very special Trailday.

We will be celebrating the 70th anniversary 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.

So, with 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,   info@scrubjaytrail.org   or call   352-429-5566   with how many are in your party. Of course, you're invited to bring a dish for the table.
