Endangered Species Day

Endangered Species Day is an opportunity for people young and old to learn about the importance of protecting endangered species and everyday actions that people can take to help protect our nation’s disappearing wildlife and last remaining open space. Protecting America’s wildlife and plants today is a legacy we leave to our children and grandchildren, so that all Americans can experience the rich variety of native species that help to define our nation. Celebrated at Cheyenne area schools by request.

National Pollinator Week

These hard working animals help pollinate over 75% of our flowering plants, and nearly 75% of our crops.  Often we may not notice the hummingbirds, bats, and bees, beetles, butterflies, and files that carry pollen from one plant to another as they collect nectar.  Yet without them, wildlife would have fewer nutritious berries and seeds, and we would miss many fruits, vegetables, and nuts like blueberries, squash, and almonds… not to mention chocolate and coffee … all of which depend on pollinators.
