This time of year most are busy running around collecting this and that for their loved ones. I want to take this opportunity to express my thanks for all the frog loving fans who have read, shared and posted photos, artworks and interesting news items.
The contest entries are flying in from all over the globe. Artworks have come in from: South Korea, Bahrain, Slovakia, Germany, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Japan, Russian Federation, Morocco, England, Ireland, Australia, Denmark, Romania, Sri Lanka, Costa Rica and USA. There are just two weeks left to submit yours! The deadline is Dec. 15, 2014.
Frogs Are Green is a New Jersey nonprofit organization and we depend on the modest donations and sales from tee shirts, posters and calendars. Please purchase our NEW 2015 Frogs and Dragonflies calendar with exceptional photography by Wes Deyton, wildlife photographer in North Carolina, or one of our magnificent conservation posters showcasing collaborations from some of the most well known artists and photographers!
If you are looking for a winter project to do with your children, download the FREE “Frogs, Amphibians and their Threatened Environment – Discovery and Expression Through Art,” 6 week curriculum!
I also wish to mention that I am enrolled in NJ Learns (a partnership between The Cloud Institute and Sustainable Jersey, thanks to my advocate, Sustainable JC, and through this education on sustainability, I am seeing more clearly, new educational ways to reach children and the general public. Look for expanded offerings as we move into 2015!
Wishing you all a very happy holiday season!
