The National Wildlife Federation is gearing up for its National Wildlife Week event next week.
National Wildlife Week is a celebration of wildlife, and it's also part of the NWF's Be out There campaign, which emphasizes the importance of children getting to experience the outdoors.
With spring coming officially next week, National Wildlife Week is a good time to kick-start your year of outdoor experiences. The NWF is also using the event to provide information about different animals, paying special attention to 45 "extra-ordinary" species.
