CAC: Information for Prospective Participants
CAC is a multi-faceted program, with many
branches, all reaching out to promote wildlife
conservation in different ways. Here are the activities planned for 2014-15.
1. CAC Hawaii -

Tropical Connections- Migratory
This branch of CAC will
study the wonders of birds, and the way that bird migration connects
our local wildlfie to that in the tropics. Participants in this effort will later host
field trips for middle-schoolers in May & June at our local Nat'l

5. CAC Web
One of the most successful
arms of the CAC program is our web site at
www.conservenature.org. This year, we will develop additional games and
content to that web site in order to
further engage the public in issues related to wildlife
If you are interested in contributing to effort, please stop by to
see DrN in the ISHAR office (HSC203).
You can learn about the many ways to get involved.
The CAC program has already reached more than
via our live presentations and via our web pages.
This program combines the study of
wildlife in their natural habitat with a chance to
shape positive attitudes in the next generation of citizens.
It is special program for special people. If you think you might be one of those
people -- someone who want to help make the world a better place --
I look forward to having you join the CAC team!
