Biologist in Training
Neighboorhood Explorers

Biologist in Training: The Southeastern U.S. is home to some of the world’s greatest diversity of fish and other aquatic species. But this wonderful diversity is being threatened as more and more aquatic species and their habitats begin to disappear. You can help by becoming involved in your community!


Neighborhood Explorers:The Neighborhood Explorers, or "NX Club," is a place where kids learn about and explore nature in their own neighborhoods. When visiting the club you explore the club house, learn about nature and wildlife, play games, and report the nature you discover outside. Our club motto is "Let's go outside!"
