Pacific Northwest Plants and Animals

Hello fellow nature lovers! We are bringing you a new resource for your little learners. These modules are geared for the 8+ year old in your life. Each module will focus on a plant or animal family native to our region.

Great for every kind of reader with loads of pictures. Useful for homeschoolers too!

As soon as a new module is completed it will be posted here and at Palouse Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation.

Module 1: Introduction

The first in a series of modules exploring the at-risk species who call the Pacific Northwest home. Using basic science, history, and archaeology, we unearth the role each species plays in their environment.
