- The Environmental Protection Agency's Earth Day site features in-person and virtual opportunities for getting involved in protecting the environment.
- Watch online videos related to environmental topics via mother nature network.
- Learn about trees, access educational activities and even give trees as a gift.
- The Lorax Project challenges children of all ages to "do their part to conserve the places and species that are critical to the future of our planet." Kids will meet the friends of the Lorax (there's the movie, of course, as well as the Dr. Seuss book that espoused the dangers of ecological destruction well before it was fashionable), including Gibbons, Lemurs and Red Pandas. They can also check out activities, games and even send a letter to the Lorax, describing what they are doing to help the planet.
- Switcheroo Zoo's Hoot Endangered Species Map allows you to click on your state to learn about its endangered species. This interactive map also shows the locations of the different biomes in the country. The site also includes loads of educational games and activities.
- Kaboose.com has lots of cool eco-friendly craft projects, coloring pages, games and activities. Watch out for the ads on this site, though (lots of them).
Go Green @ the Library - Be sure to set up your online account and include your e-mail address/mobile phone number so that we can e-mail/text your notices instead of printing/mailing.
