Day of Service - September 11
Chip,

Thanks so much! This will be very helpful. One other that comes to mind is National Wildlife Federations's "Make Tracks!" family trail weekend, October 10-12.
Don't forget about other volunteer/service days (I think (9/11 is becoming a natl. day of service). Lots of local variations, such as the Big Sunday event in the Los Angeles basin (5/1 and 5/2 for 2010). Great ways to get families engaged - and someone else does the organizing!
April is Children & Nature Awareness Month.
Thanks Amy!
