Goodbye Endangered Species Postcard Contest
Hello Xplor and Discover Nature Schools activities
In 2012, we say goodbye to our annual endangered species postcard contest. We appreciate all the teachers and students who participated in it over the years. We invite you to try the fun classroom and free-time nature activities in our Xplor magazine and website and Discover Nature Schools classroom units. Don't forget to browse our MDC Online Field Guide to identify and learn more about Missouri's plants, animals and mushrooms.
Hands-on activities help students make the habitat connection
Species become endangered when they lose habitat—food, water and shelter—or when their populations become small and isolated. All our Xplor, Discover Nature Schools and MDC Online Field Guide resources help students get outside to discover and explore nature—and make the important connection between habitat conservation and all wildlife survival.
