Featured Threatened Michigan Animal
The Short-eared Owl is an endangered species that can be found in Michigan. These owls have only been seen in ten counties this past year. To learn more, visit the Michigan State University's website and print our coloring sheet for a fun activity. The coloring pages are copyright free for participating Michigan Green Schools.
GREAT NEWS The Kirtlands Warbler, one of our featured threatened animals, has just been taken off the federal endangered species. Teachers can find our free coloring page on the activities page.
2020 THE YEAR OF COVID 19
This school year will be different for all of us. Some green activities will be ok and others may need adjusting. As we are given guidance from the state we will pass it along. Have a safe and wonderful summer!
Monthly Ideas August
Energy Idea for Summer
We just bought an American made oil lamp. Good prepper idea and lovely glow! Instead of paying 11 cents an hour a little inexpensive lamp oil works great for occasional use.
The Detroit Zoo has an Adopt a Amazon School Program. They have a building and a teacher but school supplies are very difficult to buy for these schools. Your school can sponsor an Amazon school and provide some badly needed assistance. Visit the Detroit Zoo website for details.
During shutdown A fun site we found is flybynight.org. Great source for new activities about bats.
The publication The Laundry List reports that hanging laundry outside saves between ten and twenty percent energy cost and the sun is a natural disinfectant. Good way to go outside.
Visit our Green Activities page for more suggestions. The page is updated each year, so continue to check back! We are adding styrofoam solutions this year:)
