Here's a great way to learn the capitals AND watch the greening of spring as it advances across North America.
The maps at the right show the location of each capital city in the USA and Canada. Our goal is to have a Journey North garden in every capital city.
Volunteers are Needed!
As the planting season starts we need volunteers in the capitals to particitate in this experiment. Can you help? Do you know a friend, colleague, grandparent, or other relative who lives in a capital city? Please ask if they'd be willing to participate.
