Help Track Fall's Journey South
...and join us for these Fall Activities

Journey South
As the fall season progresses, weekly migration stories will arrive from some of North America's most important refuges. Read each story and look for clues:
What fall changes trigger these migrations?

Tulip Study
It's time to dig in! Plant a Journey North Tulip Garden so you can proclaim the official arrival of spring in your community. Students across North America will follow the wave of spring, 1999.

Data Exchange
Collect clues about seasonal changes in your part of the world. Then link up with a partner.

Using nature's clues, can you find your partner?

Unpave the Way
for Wildlife
Help ensure that the annual migrations to and through your region continue. Create your own refuge--on the breeding grounds, wintering grounds, or anywhere along the migration trail and unpave the way for wildlife.

Put your habitat site on the map!

Send a Monarch
to Mexico
The 3rd Annual Symbolic Monarch Butterfly Migration is about to begin! Students across the U.S. and Canada are invited to send symbolic butterflies to Mexico for the winter. Mexican students will watch over them --and return them next spring as the real monarchs journey north.
Help Track the Monarch Migration to Mexico!

Send a Songbird
to the Neotropics
New this year!
Five billion birds will migrate south this fall. Most of them will be young birds, just born this summer. Your class can send a symbolic baby bird--and its survival kit-- along with them. Where do you suppose your songbird will spend the winter?
