Celebrate Earth Day 2014 with Party for the Planet at Walt Disney World

Posted on
To celebrate Earth Day, Walt Disney World is bringing back popular activities from past years -- and adding a few surprises -- at the resort on Tuesday. The biggest celebration, Party for the Planet, takes place at Animal Kingdom, and the activities are included with regular admission to the theme park. As guests enter the park, they will again see displays of wildlife-friendly backyard habitats and be encouraged to collect a free postcard. The postcards are a visual reminder of where to find the Earth Day activities and, in years past, guests were invited to mail them for free at several special mailboxes located throughout Animal Kingdom.

You can join Disney in supporting National Wildlife Federation’s campaign to save monarch butterflies

Posted on
When I come across a reference to Ranger Rick, the National Wildlife Federation's ambassador, fond memories of my tween years come rushing back when I had the plush version of the raccoon and a subscription to the magazine. Now, he is turning 50 and is appealing to a new generation with initiatives to save the monarch butterfly. The Federation has a longstanding commitment to bringing back America's monarch butterfly population, which has declined by 90 percent in the past 20 years. It supports the nationwide Mayors' Monarch Pledge, which has so far recruited 300 cities, counties, and towns in the monarch flyway to create more habitat and educate their residents. It also supported the designation of Interstate 35 as a monarch highway.
