Backyard Naturalists Photo Gallery

Photography is a major component of our program. We encourage our students to use the camera as a way to capture the world around them. These photos are incorporated into journals and are used in public exhibitions in locations where Backyard Naturalist programs are being held. In addition, our Flickr group has been created to allow children in other locations to share the wildlife in their own communities as well. If your child would like to join our private flickr group go here!


Our Mission

The mission of Backyard Naturalists is to inspire a lifelong appreciation of the natural world in children through educational programming that integrates science, art, and technology. The program has been developed through a partnership between The Highlands Biological Foundation and Meet Your Neighbours, an international nature photography project designed to help people to learn more about the wildlife in their own community. Backyard Naturalists is made possible through the generous support of The Eckerd Family Foundation, which provides leadership and support for innovative educational, preventative, therapeutic and rehabilitative programs for children, youth and their families.
