Things You Can Do to Help

Kids, Parents, and Teachers,


You can do a lot to help the creatures at Horsepen Run, even if you don’t visit.

Here are some simple steps:

  • Don’t buy amphibian products like frog legs and dissection frogs.  Use the University of Virginia’s FREE NetFrog instead:
  • Don’t disturb animal homes such as cocoons, pools full of tadpoles, birds’ nests, and hollow trees
  • Do plant milkweed and nectar-producing flowers in your gardens
  • Do avoid using pest control products that might kill beneficial insects or run off into streams and pollute rivers, wetlands, oceans, and bird habitats
  • Do teach your family members to keep a respectful distance from all wild creatures: look, take photos, draw pictures, but don’t touch

Thank You!
