Help Kids Avoid Summer Slide with TurfMutt Environmental Education Program

Summer’s here and kids are enjoying some time off, but it’s important to keep their minds and bodies active. You can help your kids avoid the “summer slide” where kids lose some of their academic gains from the school year, by encouraging your child to participate in the TurfMutt environmental education and stewardship program.

To get involved, go to, where you will find free downloadable e-books, an online climate game, and activity sheets you can print out and use with children in grades K-8. Built on the character of a real-life rescue dog named Lucky, kids can relate to the character of a dog and his friends, while learning about our living landscapes.

While he’s cartoonized for the website and its educational materials, Lucky is a real-life dog today who has appeared on television and visited elementary school classrooms. Because dogs love to romp outside, kids of all ages can understand why having a living landscape is so important and why we should take care for them.  Lucky can also inspire kids to get outside and get moving.
