Introducing the GreenSpot-On Wildlife Q & A!

Parents/Guardians, Teachers and GreenSpot-On Readers!

As someone who has done wildlife rehabbing, JRouse has worked with many different types of animals. She would like to give children and adults the opportunity to ask her questions about the animals she has helped. They include:

Red Fox
Canadian geese
Domestic goose
Squirrels: Red, Black, Gray Tree, Fox and Flying
Great Blue Heron
Green Heron
Barred Owl
Great Horned Owl
Screech Owl
Red-Tailed Hawk
Domestic Cats

Some of these animals are pictured in the slideshow on the main page.

If you have children or students or if you would like to ask a question about any of these animals, please send an e-mail to in the following format:

Question: (Child’s Question)
Name: (Child’s First Name) Age: (Child’s Age)
Grade: (Child’s Grade) School/Location: (Child’s School Name and City/State)

JRouse will answer up to 3 of these questions once a week as she receives them. All answers will be posted to GreenSpot-On with the original question in the format above. We at GreenSpot-On hope you will take this opportunity to teach your child something new about the wildlife around us. Thank you for joining us today!

Great idea! I'm reading the book Hoot! to my fourth grade class. Is it realistic in its depiction of the burrowing owls? My students are enjoying the book.

Sounds like a good book, maybe I'll have to check it out at the library to read it to my kids:) Who is the author?
