Armand Bayou in Texas
Identify, catalog, and learn the wildlife in your own area such as at parks, waterways, and even your own backyard. The goal is to have fun learning as much as you can so that conservation comes naturally. Try and list one fun fact about each item. How fun would it be to be able to name everything you see when you take a walk or drive. Your world is out there waiting to be noticed. Now go outside! Use the wiki or a credible website to look up what you find. People here can help identify and there are also facebook groups you can ask what certain things are. I also put my photos on Quizlet.com to help learn. Sign in to join mission
This is for Armand Bayou and 50 mile radius. Observation is the key to conservation. People will tend to conserve what they love! I absolutely love the wide variety of nature in this area. Did you ever think about how dolphins live within miles of where you live (assuming you live in this area)? There are over 250 different species of birds that live and migrate through here! Did you know spanish moss is related to a pineapple? Think of nature exploration as a game. Go take a photo, learn about what it is that you took, and write down a fun fact. Turkey Tail Mushrooms help cure cancer! (cite the study and they do!) The local Banana Spider which is really a (Golden Silk Orb Weaver) has web so strong they have used it to make bullet proof vests! Everything in nature has value to us. Go have some exercise walking or kayaking, get a little yoga in taking photos, nurture your soul surrounding yourself with nature and be your own explorer learning in the great outdoors what mother nature has to offer, and best of all, be a citizen scientist to show what treasures this area holds. All the while be a nature ninja! Meaning this is Mother Natures house...so respect it as if it was your grandma's house. Take only photos and be mindful of litter!
