I urge all of you to get involved with Save The Frogs Day--see the link below. This is one of the best ways to get your students--at any level--involved with a very important biodiversity problem. There are a lot of great ideas on the web site to engage your students, capture their attention, etc. PowerPoint presentations are avialable for you to use in your classroom or in your community. My BioClub at Ware Shoals High School has adopted this as their annual community service project. They are already preparing for the next event that takes place on April 28, 2012. Again, please check out the website; if you have any questions do not hesitate to ask me or send them to the Save The Frogs organization.

The NABT club at Northridge High School has had a great year. The 52 members have raised money to pay for their paper recycling project. They also collect cans and bottles in the school weekly. They are creating an informational DVD to help get other NABT clubs created in our area. It will be distributed in April to area schools. Earth Week will be wonderful with a recycled sculpture contest, corporation wide. We are also adopting 4 endangered species and trying to buy clean air credits. They are also reading environmental trivia and helpful hints on the announcements. They have obtained 100 trees and are passing them out to people who can use them. There will also be a car pooling contest for earth week. Lots of fun and educational too--Dawn Kessler, BioClub Advisor
