Welcome to Our New Entrance Sponsor–The National Wildlife Federation

Celebrate the outdoors with the National Wildlife Federation!

We’d like to welcome the National Wildlife Federation as one of our Entrance Sponsors at this year’s Festival! National Wildlife Federation’s Pacific Regional centers works to inspire people across the Northwest to open the door, get outside, and connect with nature! Their work and program offerings are rooted in the belief that engaging in the outdoors improves physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing, and strengthens a life-long appreciation of wildlife and nature.

Check out their Certified Wildlife Habitat program that engages people in helping wildlife, improving their communities, and developing a strong conservation ethic. The Northwest boasts over 7,000 of these certified habitats and involves communities from Anacortes to Gig Harbor! Find more information at www.nwf.org/gardenforwildlife

To inspire children to connect to nature, National Wildlife Federation assists schools in developing Schoolyard Habitats. This program is part of their Be Out There initiative, which aims to encourage families across the county to experience and enjoy the outdoors. The Schoolyard Habitats program focuses on assisting school communities in the use of school grounds as learning sites for wildlife conservation and cross-curricular learning. It also creates a dynamic outdoor classroom, expands educational opportunities, and promotes positive change in your local environment. To learn more, visit www.nwf.org/schoolyard

Visit them Saturday, May 25th at the Bagley St Entrance to find out more information about community events and how to get involved!
