Fall in Love with Nature

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a trip outside.

| February 13, 2009

Get outside and explore nature.

Check out the Let's Go Outside website for more ideas on exploring nature.

Valentine’s Day is a perfect time to fall in love with nature. Go outside to experience the excitement of a majestic bald eagle or the thrill of a bright red cardinal, whether in your own backyard or at one of America’s national wildlife refuges. There is a national wildlife refuge or fish hatchery just an hour’s drive from most major metropolitan areas, and all are inviting portals to the natural world.

The Service’s “Let’s go Outside” website contains a wealth of information to help families connect with nature, including:

? Electronic Valentines, featuring bald eagles, red foxes and even turtles, that are great to send to friends and family.

? Fact sheets about numerous wildlife species, including bald eagles, moose, sea turtles and cardinals.

? Tips on how youngsters and their families can start observing wildlife.

? Links to maps and a special events calendar that can help families find places to go and see nature up close.
