Ringo Raccoon has always been a scavenger, hunting for nature’s treasures. In 2020, his nature missions for you are inspired by the fact that Earth Day is turning 50 years old! Earth Day was created to build an appreciation for our planet and make sure we are using its resources in a sustainable way. But Earth Day can be celebrated every day! Celebrate, explore, and learn with your Nature Passport!

Mini Print-at-Home Passport!

Starting for the first time in 2020, Nature Net provides a free, mini print-at-home Nature Passport! The Mini Passport is a simple one-page sheet that families can print out and fold into a small booklet. With a parent’s help, children can text each site’s codeword to discover a unique nature mission. Once the mission is complete, parents can initial the Passport and watch as their child discovers 19 new ways to explore the world around them.
