The National Wildlife Federation is partnering with the new film, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole, to bring the movie’s lessons closer to home.
I just found out the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is the official education partner of the new film called Legend of the Guardians. I’m a big fan of the NWF ever since the organization certified my yard as a wildlife habitat.
The collaboration includes an educational effort to build on what children and their parents see in the movie and to encourage them to get involved by “adopting” some of the owls featured in the animated movie.
The NWF also created a free downloadable activity guide to get kids interested in wildlife conservation. The guide includes tips for watching wildlife, ideas for going on an owl prowl, hands-on habitat projects, character cutouts for making a mobile, coloring pages and other crafts, and a recipe for making a special snack.
Legend of the Guardians is based on the series of books by Kathryn Lasky and it follows the adventures of a young owl whoooo sets out to save all of owlkind.
I hope this partnership between the NWF and the film will inspire many moviegoers to learn more about the owls in their own neighborhoods.
