Explore the cushy lifestyle that cities and towns offer certain animals—with plenty of food, water, and safe hiding places—in this media gallery from the PLUM LANDING: Explore Outdoors. This media gallery pairs a PLUM LANDING animation and a related hands-on activity to provide about one hour of programming. Start by having kids watch Why We Live in the City, a short animated video about the benefits, to animals, of living in cities and towns. Then, head outdoors to scout for local wildlife with the hands-on activity Signs of Life. If time permits, wrap up your day by completing one or more of the “Explore Some More” activities.
