Kids for Conservation ®  


Spring is here! What is “spring?” Spring is a time when weather conditions generally become warmer for longer periods of time and rain occurs more often than snow. It is a time of renewal for plants. It is a time of great activity for animals. Enjoy spring by looking and listening for changes in the natural world. Learn about signs of spring this month and send us your observations!

Kids for Conservation® requests are intended for youth up to 17 years of age. Educator resources are also posted on this page.
