Here is more about Children's Nature Guide:
www.ChildrensNatureGuide.comis a new website for families and children with the goal of making nature study and environmental stewardship as fun as it is educational. The site was created by Joseph Yurt, environmentalist, author, and nature educator.
Kids can interact with the site in various fun ways, including following the diary entries of Ari, a young girl gray squirrel. Children can share their comments with her and email her with nature questions. Parents Pages provide guidance, ideas, books and other resources for creating a nature rich environment for kids in the home and outside.
Interactive experiences also include an Animal Icon Click-on Field Trip, a JustForKidsLibrary, submissions to KidsWrite, book and website reviews written by adults and kids, KidServe, giving opportunities and Service Grants to help kids make a difference in their community and in the world, and ChildrensNatureGuide Roots & Shoots environmental stewardship group for families.
