Visit your local park

If  “Citizen Science” isn’t for you, then just visit your local park.  “Tourism Stops, Parks Falling on Hard Times” by Laura Bruno  at USA Today should be enough motivation.

My kids and nature

Both my kids love nature but each in their own way. This first article is for my daughter (who loves animals) and the second one is for my oldest son (who loves volcanoes).

NSF Reports on Jellyfish Gone Wild” by Jeremy Elton Jacquot at Treehugger talks about our oceans and their friends the jellyfish.

What Will You Do if Mt. Fuji Erupts?” by Greenz.jp, also at Treehugger.

Nature and Family

Having almost finished the book Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv, I would have to agree with the article “Forests are a Family Value, Expert Says” over at EarthSky.

Deep Ecology

I’m back after a long hiatus. I guess you could say I was doing a little  “Deep Ecology”. Anyway, here we go.

If you’re looking to become in a “Citizen Scientist”, then “The Christmas Bird Count is Under Way” by Dan Shapley at The Daily Green is for you. It has all kinds of great ideas. I took my kids out to go “Owling” a few weeks ago and we had a blast.

If you need a motivation, then check out “Cutbacks to Air, Water Monitoring Programs” by Leslie Wolcott over at Green Daily.
