NPS Let's Go Outside! Flickr Group

This summer, get out into nature and see some wildlife – in your backyard, at a local park or on a nearby national wildlife refuge.  You will create family memories to last a lifetime, and if you take your digital camera, you can capture these memories and share them through a new Flickr group called “Let’s Go Outside.”

Hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the “Let’s Go Outside”[http://www.flickr.com/groups/1385215@N24] group allows Flickr users to upload images of themselves, their family and friends outside in nature.  You can use Flickr’s Map function to identify where your photos were taken and see the places where group members explore nature.  You can also describe where the image was taken and what it was like, blog about particular photos and your experiences in nature, and chat on the Flickr Discussion board with other group members about their favorite places to go.  You can even upload images from your cell phone.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s “Let’s Go Outside” initiative encourages children, educators and parents to get outside and enjoy nature and wildlife.  To learn about activities in nature, including the basics of digital nature photography, visit http://www.fws.gov/letsgooutside.

You can also visit the “Let’s Go Outside” web site to locate one of America’s 550 remarkable national wildlife refuges and discover what nature has to offer.  Most metropolitan areas are within an hour’s drive of at least one wildlife refuge.  But experiencing nature can also be as convenient as visiting a local state park, bird watching in your backyard or even taking a walk around the neighborhood to admire wildlife.  Watching wildlife is an extremely easy, fun and free way to enjoy the environment, spend time with family or just to relax.

“Let’s Go Outside” strives to promote environmental awareness while reconnecting Americans with nature – encouraging healthier lifestyles and helping to ensure future generations appreciate the natural world around them.

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people.  We are both a leader and trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated professionals and commitment to public service.  For more information on our work and the people who make it happen, visit www.fws.gov.

The Ultimate Airsoft Amphibious Battle Tank Weapon of Doom

Rechargeable Super R/C Land & Sea Amphibious Air Soft Battle Tank Rechargeable Super R/C Land & Sea Amphibious Air Soft Battle Tank

Fast moving on LAND and WATER! The Super R/C LAND + SEA Amphibious Tank!! Extremely Power Shooting! Fast Moving on LAND and WATER! This rechargeable R/C amphibious tank can TRANSFORM between TANK and SHIP in second! Also, the Powerful Cannon can shoot as far as 20 Meters. 20 Meters! That is almost 60 feet! While working on rough ground, like grassplot, sand, and carpet, the 4×4 precision-grip wheels can move extremely fast in ANY DIRECTIONS on all terrain. When run this water resistant tank into the water, you can transform into ship within several seconds. It comes with flashing LEDs indication light which let you run it in the dim/dark environment. What’s more, this tank can be a Soda Can Caddy in the beach! You may never experience such Crazy R/C Tank before! You Would Know the Huge Fun of this Tank!!

Wow, that first paragraph was fun. But just in case you got totally confused, we’ll say it again with a bit more grammar. Our R/C Land & Sea Tank drives great on all sorts of surfaces and transforms from tank to ship in mere seconds. It’s particularly fun for a day at the beach because you can drive it on the sand, over the people you’ve buried in the sand, and then into the water. You can also defend your plot of sand by shooting BB’s at people who attempt to put their towels in your zone. Once you’ve scared them all away, your tank can rest by your side and serve as a drink holder for your soda. Sweet.
