Art Connects Kids with Nature
It’s not always easy to send a take away message home with families, but TNC's "Make your own bird t-shirt " event fits the bill.
There is nothing like producing art that helps kids think about nature. At events in Beatty and Las Vegas, TNC naturalist Len Warren has helped connect kids with nature through a "Make your own bird t-shirt" activity.

Len says, "It's not always easy to send a take away message home with families, but this event fits the bill. Kids line up to make a t-shirt. They study birds from books and photographs.
"They pick out favorites and create their own little work of nature art to take home.
"They ask lots of bird questions, and their parents ask about who we are and what we do.
"You never know when or how some kid gets a 'magic moment' with nature, but I know I've seen some!"
