The Gift That Lasts a Lifetime

Give the Gift That Makes a Difference

Give your children a gift that lasts a lifetime and echoes through generations: a love for Nature.

Start by exploring the nature in your own backyard with your children. Even the smallest discoveries can lead to something big: A connection with nature that lasts a lifetime. 

Discovering the nature of your child

During the process, you may discover more about the true and unique nature of your child!  We have recommendations for booksgames, puzzlesactivities and toys suitable for every age and interest. Just ask!

Empowering and encouraging action

Empower your children to take action, with a simple start on a backyard micro-habitatlike a window feeder or even a DIY kit to build their own feeder!  No matter the scale or level of effort, even the smallest effort by the smallest hands contributes to making a difference! 

Igniting and fostering interests

Our goal is to make it simple for you and fun for them! 

The Backyard Naturalist team will be here to help you support and encourage your budding naturalist every step of the way with personalized recommendations.

Best wishes for a safe and stress-free holiday season for you and your loved ones. We are thankful for your continuing support of wild birds and for our efforts here at the store.
