Our IceWatch USA program was the focus of the Pulse radio show in the Philadelphia, NJ, and DE areas. NA President Melinda Hughes-Wert and volunteer Bob Berke were interviewed. Check it out.

Note that the radio link can be found near the top of the page, or you can read the transcript. http://www.newsworks.org/index.php/health-science/item/63862-ice-watch-usa-

There are many different types of snow and various names for how wind and air temperature affect it. How many can you name? Take the quiz now.

Help Nature Abounds raise money to expand our Knitters for Nature's Critters by donating today! We want to expand the program from jumper sweaters for penguins to helping dogs and cats in shelters that have been displaced from nature disasters. We can only do it with your help though! Please donate and please share this with friends and family!

It is Penguins Awareness Day. Sign up as a Knitters for Nature's Critters and knit jumper sweaters for penguins that have been affected by an oil spill. If you can't knit, you can still help by sharing this post, or be donating some money to help with materials and postage of the jumpers. http://www.natureabounds.org/Knitters4NaturesCritters.html

By working with our partner groups in the Chesapeake Bay region and the Choose Clean Water Coalition, Nature Abounds is proud to have been part of the catalyst that made this happen!

While some members of Congress debate the scientific validity of climate change, these U.S. cities are going beyond efforts to mitigate it with lower greenhouse gas emissions. We thank them for being leaders on a very important issue.

What are your thoughts on GMO Labeling? If you think foods should have GMO labels, should it be at the states level or at the federal level?

Introduction
Nature Abounds™, a national 501c3 non-profit organization, brings people together for a healthy planet.  Nature Abounds™ serves as a center where people can connect with like-minded people interested in protecting the environment and in taking action for a healthier planet. To do so, we:

  • Raise citizen awareness of the natural world through education, action, and inspiration.
  • Inform citizens about environmental health as well as human health impacted by environmental degradation.
  • Strengthen the voice of action by connecting the stewards of the planet, by building strong partnerships, and by supporting efforts that ultimately lead to a healthier planet for all of us.
  • Engage citizens of all ages in taking action for healthier communities and a healthy planet where people and wildlife can co-exist peacefully

Formed in 2008, Nature Abounds has already launched two successful programs nationally,IceWatch USA and Watch the Wild, and revitalized the Pennsylvania Senior Environment Corps, a group of senior citizens volunteering for the planet.  To date, Nature Abounds is engaging approximately 2,500 volunteers across all fifty states and Puerto Rico.
