A newspaper for each child, plus a teacher's manual and other teaching aids, brings the wonders of the natural world to more than 15,000 classrooms across the nation five times a year. If you would like to sponsor a particular teacher, classroom or make a contribution to the overall program here's your chance to make a difference.
