Biology Resources 
from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services 

We invite you to follow Explore Your World, a local series of educational videos by Gretchen Newberry of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services. Ranger Gretchen examines biology in our homes, yards, and neighborhoods in each video and ends with a small activity. 
You can find environmental education resources at the national U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Fish & Aquatic Conservation website, including coloring sheets, word searches, and more. Follow the Midwest Fisheries Center on Facebook for more in-home activities and resources, as well as access to Ranger Gretchen's latest videos.
