Enjoy this environment and help
preserve species at risk in
the area by adopting sound
outdoor ethics.
Encourage friends, family and
community members to follow
your lead.
Take pictures of points of interest like
animal gathering areas or patches of
flowering plants. Try to revisit these
places and see how they change over
the years by comparing the pictures.
You can also become more familiar
with the species in the region and join
a wildlife survey to report on birds,
frogs or plants in the area.
Many heads are better than
one! Talk to people about your
concerns; they might join your
improvement efforts.
Learn to identify any alien
invasive species. Record
and report them; if possible,
help organize an event to
remove them!
