BUILD A BIRD NEST 

It is spring, and birds everywhere are building nests to create a safe, warm place to lay eggs and raise their young. Using natural materials from a backyard or household items, anyone can design and build a nest inspired by nature. Next step? Creating a giant nest for a human family.

DESERT DETECTIVES BINGO AT HOME: ANIMALS

Many creatures make their home in the Sonoran Desert. Animals are integral to the ecosystem even when humans can’t see them. The Garden offers printable sheets inviting Valley residents to search for signs of animal life as they explore their neighborhoods.
