Ireland’s Wild River

Okay, so I’ve been off the radar for a while now and it ended yesterday when I was out sick from work but I’m back and so I thought I would post about this great show I watch yesterday entitled “Ireland’s Wild River” on the Nature program at PBS.

Thinking of my kids in nature

As my kids get older and my chances to get them out into nature begin to dwindle, this article reminds why it’s been important to continue to do that. The article is entitled “Let the Kids Play: Nature Can Take It” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger.

The best (and worst) in nature

When I read this article today, I knew I had to write about it. I always enjoy a feel good story, sort of like the book I’m reading now, A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans but, without the happy ending (I know because I peeked).

The article/video is entitled “Magpie Befriends Family That Rescued It” by David Strege over at GrindTV. Here’s hoping it has a happy ending.

I love a good story (about sea turtles)

I was actually thinking about going to be when I found this story tonight. Like I said, I love a good story, especially when it’s about sea turtles. I’ve always had a love for turtles and sea turtles most of all. To me, they are just these majestic animals from another time.

The story is entitled “Rare 500-Pound Leatherback Turtle is Rescued” by Pete Thomas over at GrindTV.  Check it out.

Leaving tracks

One of the joys for me during the winter season is seeing tracks in the snow and with our recent snow fall here in the midwest, I’ve finally seen some tracks. With that said I recently came across this book while I was cleaning the house tonight, “Teacher’s Guide for Tracks” by David Alexander.

It also comes with 52 card with the various tracks that are in the book. How cool is that?
