"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

You can join the community and create a map of your own backyard or some other backyard...real or imaginary. You can upload your photos to share with your Backyard Jungle neighbors. You can even draw plants or animals you see and add them to your discoveries.

I just created an account as AuntCarolyn...and uploaded a couple photos and drew a hummingbird I saw in my yard. It was so much fun!

You can visit other peoples yards, too and see their photos and read about their discoveries and interests.
