National Wildlife Day

National Wildlife Day is celebrated on September 4th every year!

Fun fact: President Ulysses S. Grant signed the law establishing Yellowstone as America’s first national park — and the first national park in the world in 1872.

Fun fact: Colleen Paige created National Wildlife Day in honor of the late wildlife conservationist Steve Irwin — the famed “Crocodile Hunter” in 2006.

Enjoy this day by going on a hike around your house and finding something that starts with every letter of the alphabet. Go explore the great outdoors!
