“Nature Trackers Week”
November 14-18th on Dinosaur Train
Four New Episodes!
Get outside, get into nature and make your own discoveries! That’s the ideas behind an exciting new nature Trackers initiative launching as part of season two of Dinosaur Train on PBS Kids. In the first of four new episodes, premiering the week of November 14, Buddy and his sibling build a beachside clubhouse. Shiny thinks that a clubhouse needs a club, and the “Nature Trackers” club is born!
The Jim Henson Company is also encouraging real life kids to join the club! Beginning in November 2011, the Dinosaur Train website at pbskids.org/dinosaurtrain will feature a downloadable Nature Trackers activity book kids can do with their families. Once the activities are completed, kids can send in proof of their participation to The Jim Henson Company and receive a free dinosaur Train Nature Trackers reward in the mail celebrating their outdoor achievement! Families can also sign up to receive a Nature Trackers e-newsletter with a new outdoor activity challenge each month.
