In partnership with Animal Planet and the National Wildlife Federation, Discovery Education presents BACKYARD HABITAT--a program that teaches students about the wildlife in their backyards and encourages them to make the world "a better place for animals, one backyard at a time." In this episode, hosts Molly and Dave visit the Stephenson family in rural Mims, FL to build a house to attract Purple Martin birds who consume flying insects. The Stephensons will follow in the footsteps of southern Native American tribes who used hollow gourds as houses for the birds.
