The Greenwings program from Ducks Unlimited grabs kids' attention through online games and activities -- but its real purpose is to get them outside and involved in conservation, wetlands study and wildlife.
Geared for children 17 and younger, the program combines local events, subscriptions to publications, and computer games and activities to awaken interest in the outdoors.
The website describes the program's benefits as follows: "As a Ducks Unlimited Greenwing, you're going to do something for wetlands and wildlife today and tomorrow. Today, your youthful outlook and energy will be part of the largest wetlands conservation organization in the world. Tomorrow, you'll be an involved adult who cares, helping us conserve North American wetlands habitat for all the tomorrows to come."
