ENR2 Welcomes Hummingbirds

The UA community was inspired over the summer by a live feed of a hummingbird nest at the new Environment and Natural Resources Building (ENR2). A mother hummingbird fed her babies as they opened their beaks for the world to see. 

The natural environment and wildlife interaction is part of ENR2’s design, inspired by a desert slot canyon.

ENR2 is an energy-efficient facility that is home to the UA Institute of the Environment and supports interdisciplinary research among the UA’s many sciences: earth, environmental, arid lands, geography, natural resources, and mathematics.
