Earth Rangers' ambassadors find receptive crowd at elementary school

It’s no secret kids love animals, and it’s no secret why. The variety of creatures in the world is so fascinating, and so many of us know the joy of having a pet or pets in the family, or having friends who do.

So it didn’t take the two representatives from Earth Rangers long to get the undivided attention of a gymnasium-full of kids at Twin Rivers Elementary on Thursday, September 26.

The Earth Rangers is a group with compassionate ambition and it’s enlisting support from an idealistic and energetic generation. With more than 200,000 (and counting) members, they aim to make a continuing and expanding difference… and don’t bet against them doing just that.
