Creating a wildlife friendly yard is easy and the rewards are plenty!
1) Grow native plants found in your area, including trees, shrubs and other plants that offer food such as pollen, nectar, nuts, cones, berries and other seeds.
2) Provide water for wildlife with a small pond, birdbath or shallow dish ... or care for a natural spring or stream on or near your habitat.
3) Create protective cover for wildlife by growing a meadow, a prairie, densely branched shrubs and, when appropriate, evergreens.
4) Build birdhouses, attach to metal poles and monitor their use. Grow host plants for butterfly and moth caterpillars to eat and provide dense plantings to create safe areas for nesting wildlife.
We have partnered with Peace River Audubon Society (PRAS) to the extent if you create a wildlife friendly yard, they will place a sign stating such. And if you live in an active scrub jay area, PRAS will provide you the sign with a FL Scrub Jay Friendly Yard sticker. Please feel free to contact us if you would like more information!
