Happy Earth Day! Interior protects amazing natural landscapes at public lands across the country, sustains healthy habitat for fish and wildlife, and develops cutting-edge science to better understand the forces that shape the planet. From a family of kayakers at Everglades National Park in Florida to this majestic ground squirrel at Denali National Park in Alaska, we wish everyone and everything on our only home, a positive Earth Day.

It’s the best time of year! The first baby bison of spring was recently spotted at Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota. Calves are orange-red in color, earning them the nickname “red dogs.” They can walk within 3 hours of birth, and before long, nursery groups of calves will romp around together, never far from their mothers’ watchful eyes.

The night time hoots of owls can make the forest a little spooky, but the look of this young great horned owl is just terrifying. Though it’s covered in fluffy feathers, its dominant features are its huge yellow eyes and powerful talons. Soon, this owl at Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado will learn how to fly and become one of nature’s most skilled hunters; feared by prey across the country.
