I got this for our friends as a housewarming gift. It was a perfect gift for their home. They absolutely loved it!

The butterfly houses are beautifully crafted and will be a wonderful addition to our elementary school's butterfly garden. I can't wait to get them installed for the children and butterflies to enjoy. :) Thank you for this beautiful product that will be enjoyed for years to come.
Our products help people enjoy, learn about and interact with this amazing natural world we live in.
Backyard habitats act as important stepping stones between natural areas that have been fragmented by development. These habitats can be as simple as a single Bird Feeder or a Solitary Bee House in your flower garden. By additionally providing native plants, water, food sources and shelter, your backyard habitat becomes a colorful and inviting refuge for migrating and resident birds, frolicking lizards and beneficial insects.
Barefoot Swan Nature Arts developed from our interest in creating our own backyard habitat to attract native desert wildlife to our yard. After much research, experimenting (and hard work!) we are proud that our yard has been recognized as a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.
Whether you live in the desert, the mountains, a city, near the ocean,
or by a lake...
Whether your yard is an urban garden, an apartment porch,
or measured in acres...
Every bit of created habitat helps replace natural areas lost to development.
ENJOY YOUR BACKYARD HABITAT!
