About

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!
-- Photography
-- Sketches, drawing, painting
-- Field guides can help identify your guests
-- Watch seasonal changes
-- Family time
-- Keep a journal or diary; make notes on your calendar
-- Write a blog
-- Start a "Yard List" of bird, insect and lizard visitors
-- or simply relax and observe

All items are designed and hand made in our California desert studio/workshop.

We use organic, recycled and repurposed materials whenever possible.

We invite you to visit our shop, and hope you will find a unique, nature-inspired item to add to your garden or give as a gift.
