Arizona Backyard Naturalist YouTube Channel

The video introduction for an episode of Arizona Backyard Naturalist.

The Arizona Backyard Naturalist project grew out of the final project of Jeni Ussery, a member of cohort two.  The timing for the final project coincided with the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, and Jeni thought it might be nice for folks who were spending more time at home to be able to learn more about the plants, animals, and other natural systems at play in their backyards and neighborhoods.  As Jeni shared out the first videos, another cohort member expressed interest in creating a video, and suggested opening it up to other Master Naturalists as well!

Arizona Backyard Naturalist videos are posted once a week, typically on Sundays, and provide information on identifying elements of the Sonoran desert that appear in our backyards and communities. The project is ongoing, and all videos can be viewed at the Arizona Backyard Naturalist YouTube Channel.
