Activity | Build a Bird Nest | Desert Botanical Garden

OPEN DAILY 8 A.M.|7 A.M. FOR MEMBERS WED. & SUN.

It is spring, and birds everywhere are building nests to create a safe, warm place to lay eggs and raise their young. Take a moment to observe photos of nests online. What do you notice? How are they similar? How are they different?

Using natural materials from your backyard or household items, design and build a nest inspired by nature. 

Extension: Ready for more? Create a giant nest for your human family. What does your family need to stay safe and warm.

The Garden is currently deinstalling Chihuly in the Desert and there may be temporary closures to some areas of the Garden. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

The Garden will be closed to the public July 4-11. We look forward to seeing you again on July 12.

ADVANCE TICKET RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED FOR MEMBERS & GENERAL ADMISSION.
