Exploring the Nature Around You

The First in the Catbird Series of DVD's

by Greg Dodge


Nature is everywhere. Unfortunately, many of us take little or no notice of what's going on around us on a daily basis. Exploring The Nature Around You will help introduce you to some of the routine yet often unnoticed goings on of some of our common-and not so common-plants, insects, birds, and other animals.

In This Volume:
Spring Forth and Multiply! Have you ever heard the early spring chorus of frogs and toads? We take a look at some of our early breeding amphibians.

River Walk - Rivers can be great places to visit. River Walk takes us on a hike to have a look at some of the creatures found in and around small woodland rivers and streams.

Field Trip: Meadows, Fields, and Pastures - Have you ever explored a meadow, a field, or a pasture? You'll be surprised at all the creatures that use these habitats.

Bees and Wasps - What's the name of that bee hovering around the wood pile? that wasp building a nest on the chimney? In Bees and Wasps we take a close look at some common bees and wasps.

What's going on in YOUR backyard? - You don't have to travel far to observe nature-it's as close as your own backyard!

As a bonus this DVD includes a serene look at the color RED found in the nature around us and the never ending battle that Birds have to keep up their appearances.
