Announcing publication of The Garden of Wisdom: Earth Tales from the Middle East—a new children’s book edited by Michael J. Caduto, creator and co-author of the New York Times best-selling Keepers of the Earth® series.

The Secrets of the Forest series was written with 2 main purposes in mind.
1. To offer parents, teachers, scout leaders, and outdoor educators a guide to engage their students in Nature . . . at a time when our young ones so desperately need this connection, as does Nature itself.
2) To win over a new generation of environmental advocates who will look after this world.
The USA-NPN’s Botany Primer is an educational resource designed to help observers make reliable plant observations for submission to the Nature’s Notebook citizen and professional science program. It covers basic botany, phenology vocabulary and the USA-NPN’s plant phenophases. It is also very appropriate for those interested in simply learning more about botanical terms and concepts, separate from participation in Nature's Notebook.
"Animals at Risk from Climate Change" is a comprehensive resource that presents a succinct overview of the fundamental impacts of greenhouse gases—the causes, effects and risks of extinction to all forms of life on the planet. It is available as either a full color wall poster or a 70 page downloadable hi resoultion PDF that functions as both a carefully sequenced slide show and a set of printable handouts.
Comprehensive and rigorously annotated to reliable sources, this resource is a valuable, timely and relevant educational aid.
Published in collaboration with The Global Education Project, a non-profit foundation.

While the approaches overlap in some respects, they do suggest different priorities and involve different trade-offs. With this in mind, what should we do to ensure that people from all walks of life have the food they need?
