2012 is a great year for Woodsy Owl! The Woodsy's ABC Teacher’s Supplement for the Woodsy’s ABC book will be distributed to 5,000 elementary school educators nationwide by January 31, 2012. On Friday, January 27, 2012 there will be the national launch of the revamped Junior Snow Ranger. 15,000 Junior Snow Ranger booklets will be distributed for the launch. This means that thousands of children nationwide will share the joy of winter by conducting activities outside. Information about the events will be posted on Woodsy's Facebook that day. Program participants will post photos and videos of their winter experience as becoming Junior Snow Rangers. Our newly Junior Snow Rangers will continue following Woodsy on Facebook so they can meet with other future conservation leaders.
If you would like to join this national winter adventure, log on to www.symbols.gov and look under ranger programs to get your junior snow ranger books. Encourage your children to practice safety behavior while enjoying winter outside and conduct one or more activities from the JSR booklet with your class.
Remember, winter is just beginning!
And, there is more to come... Woodsy's partnership with the Office of the Head Start is growing, the invasive insect magazine is in the making, and the Spanish adaptation of the ABC book is expected to be completed by the end of this calendar year. As I said, 2012 looks very promising for our friendly owl! Go Woodsy!!
