National Wildlife Federation Nature Guide Apps


The National Wildlife Federation’s (NWF) Nature Guide apps are “field guides for the 21st century.” Each guide is jam packed with features including expert-curated content, high-quality professional photos and illustrations, range maps, and audio recordings of species sounds. You can also organize species alphabetically or taxonomically; search by family, shape, color, and habitat (among others); and take notes and upload photos to create digital nature journals. Guides are available for mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, insects and spiders, butterflies, mushrooms, and trees.

NWF has also developed garden guide apps for vegetables and herbs. These apps include plant and care guides, landscaping ideas, and garden plans and calendars to help you grow and harvest in an environmentally-friendly way.


Cost: $9.99 per app
Available for Apple devices only
