The first question you’re probably asking yourself is: Who are the Jonas Brothers? They are only the biggest Disney Channel-approved musicians/movie stars in the universe—just ask your young daughter or niece, they’ll tell you. They sell millions of albums, star in made-for-TV movies, and set the hearts of underage girls aflutter.
They also dig national parks: All three Jonas Brothers joined First Lady Laura Bush to participate in the First Bloom National Parks event with kids from the Dallas area.
Joining 150 students from the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Dallas and Williams Preparatory School for a special First Bloom event at the Trinity River Audubon Center, Mrs. Bush and the brothers took part in hands-on activities aimed at helping young people from urban communities connect to the outdoors and develop a commitment to conservation.
Lest you think the boys are posers, they actually joined in on a hike through Great Trinity National Forest, the largest urban hardwood forest in the U.S., where they helped the students identify native plants and wildlife, restore native grasses, and disperse seed balls to help promote healthy forest growth. (Though I wonder how many teenage girls in the group really focused on their seed balls, unless it was to impress dreamy Kevin, Joe, or Nick).
