Celebrated every year in March, National Wildlife Week is a time we set aside to honor wildlife and ignite the minds of children and adults.
This year, to honor the 75th year of this NWF holiday, we’re not only designing materials and activities that celebrate the wonder of trees and how they help wildlife—we’re also helping schools and groups across the country host on-the-ground tree-planting events.

•    Start planning your National Wildlife Week celebration.
•    Apply to host a tree planting event -- NWF will provide FREE trees!
