Jackson's Plan

Jackson, a green tree frog in the Okefenokee Swamp, learns to persevere in the face of obstacles

Visit the Okefenokee for a lesson in pursuing goals. Jackson is a green tree frog and a resident of the Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia. One afternoon, Jackson learns that a slick new brochure is being prepared to draw tourists to this famed wildlife refuge, home to alligators and water lilies, coach whip snakes and cypress trees, pileated woodpeckers and cinnamon ferns. Jackson is determined that the diminutive green tree frog species will not be left out. Jackson's plan takes him on a photo shoot through three habitats of the Okefenokee — the swampy woods, the piney woods, and the open marshlands. Along his madcap way, he encounters obstacles and setbacks, but Jackson perseveres — with surprising results. 

Jackson s Plan will help you:

  • Promote goal-setting and strategic planning
  • Encourage perseverance in the face of obstacles
  • Explore the ecology of wetlands and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge
