Help a Herp, Become a Bookworm!

Thanks to REI’s generous support of the 2010 GGNP Endangered Species Big Year, we are happy to bring you a new interim Big Year competition to win nature prizes during the month of June!

From June 1 until June 30, any 2010 Golden Gate National Parks Endangered Species Big Year competitor that (1) completes the action item for the San Francisco Garter Snake; (2) completes the action item for the California Red-legged Frog, and (3) sees at least one of these two herpetological species will win a free copy of Richard Louv’s seminal book, Last Child In the Woods: Saving Our Chidren From Nature-deficit Disorder.

To win the prize you must sign-up for the GGNP Endangered Species Big Year, complete the action items for the San Francisco Garter Snake and the California Red-legged Frog, see either the Frog or the Snake, and log your actions and sighting into the GGNP Endangered Species Big Year website by 11:59:59 p.m. on June 30, 2010.

Remember, the action item for the San Francisco Garter Snake is to help Restore Sharp Park by contacting the San Francisco Board of Supervisors & the Mayor and asking them to restore Sharp Park!

The action item for the California Red-legged Frog is to volunteer with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy to restore habitat for the frog at Mori Point!

And both species may be seen during this weekend’s June 5, 10 a.m. Big Year trip to Mori Point!

Good luck and see you outside!
