|Walk on the Wild Side Takes Off|
|The voting results for the Walk on the Wild Side logo were close, but the logo at left was chosen as either good or best by 74% of voters. This logo was designed to reflect and complement the Environment for the Americas' organizational logo with the colorful tree of birds. The Walk on the Wild Side leaf illustrates human and animal tracks moving together toward the same goal...conservation.|
Several groups are already preparing to host a walk-a-thon, and we will be working with these sites to be sure their events are successful. No matter where you are, you may support conservation as a walker or as a virtual donor. If your business or organization is interested in being a national or local sponsor, please contact Susan Bonfield at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tune in next month, when we'll share information about the first Walk on the Wild Side!
|Go Wild, Go Birding with Jr. Duck Stamp|
|As you plan your International Migratory Bird Day (IMBD) events, find ways to highlight information about other bird-focused activities. There are many opportunities to stay involved in birds, birding, and bird conservation, such as the Junior Duck Stamp program. |
The Junior Duck Stamp program is educational, creative, and available to kids in grades K-12. Partner with Jr. Duck Stamp coordinators and participants in your area and display the art at your IMBD event. Recruit kids for the following year. Kevin Lowry of the Whittlesey Creek National Wildlife Refuge in Wisconsin created the poster at right to advertise the Jr. Duck Stamp contest.
