Upcycle a Coffee Tub to a Nest Box for National Wildlife Week

by Mary Kay Carson

Happy National Wildlife Week 2020, America! April 6-10 is this year's week for appreciating what's wild around you. As the National Wildlife Federation says: Embrace the wild life!

Spring is the perfect time to take notice of wildlife. Every day brings a new songbird returning from southern climes or a creature awakening from winter's long sleep. My new book for young people invites kids and families to help local wild animals by improving habitat right in our own backyards. Wildlife Ranger Action Guide has bird, mammal, reptile, amphibian, and invertebrate identification pages as well as fun projects for creating wildlife habitat near you. You can be a hero for wildlife! 

Here's a fun project from the book that's easy and simple to make with materials out of the recycling bin.  Enjoy, be well, and celebrate wildlife no matter where you are.
