Community driven biodiversity conservation and learning

MN Backyard Science is a community science initiative in Minnesota.

What we’re about:

  1. Conservation: Re-wilding land to provide habitat for our native MN flora and fauna
  2. Community engagement: Meaningfully connecting communities with science and the natural world

We create fun, engaging lessons about plants, pollinators, ecology, evolution, and all sorts of natural history that you can use at home. Find them in our Lessons and Activities page, along with tips on how to create high quality native habitat in your own backyard.
