Looking for something to do with kids this Earth Day? Check outPennies for the Planet-- a powerful tool for motivating kids of all ages to learn about and become engaged in protecting biodiversity. Our friends at the National Audubon Society, where EDNEducation Director Sean Miller was once a Conservation Leadership Fellowwith theirTogetherGreenprogram, are running this incredibly exciting program! P4P kids raise funds for conservation and conduct environmental projects in their own communities. By teaching young people about threatened ecosystems and wildlife,Pennies for the Planetstrives to connect young people and families with the environment and provide ideas about how they can help protect it.
Change collected from now through August 2011 will be divided equally among the following three conservation projects:
· Protecting habitat alongNebraska’s Platte River, a critical nesting and foraging site for majestic Sandhill Cranes, and endangered Whooping Cranes, Least Terns and Piping Plovers.
· Boosting Monarch butterflyhabitat in Arizonaso these unique creatures can rest during winter months and reproduce in the spring; and
· Helping beach-nesting birds alongMississippi’s Gulf Coastcombat future breeding challenges from the effects of the recent oil spill, as well as on-going threats from beach goers and lack of vegetation.
There are important changes that need to be made at every level to help preserve the Earth.
This year we are going to change things up a little, Earth-Kidz is going to expand our Horizons. The Earth is a great cause but there are so many people and places on the Earth that we can touch through a variety ideas.
