Tom LaBonge News Get to Know Your Furry Neighbors
Tom is pleased to announce the launch of the 2010 Get to Know (Your Wild Neighbors) contest. The Get to Know program teaches youth about animals and nature through art. Contest winners are featured in the Get to Know annual calendar and are celebrated throughout the year.
“The Get to Know program is so important in the City of Los Angeles. I hike Mt. Hollywood every morning, and there’s nothing like connecting with nature to instill a sense of pride in our green spaces and to appreciate the beauty of our ‘wild neighbors,’” Tom said. “There’s no time like the present to encourage our children to consider their ‘wild neighbors’ so they can begin to make wise decisions today that will protect our earth tomorrow.”
