Creating a wildlife friendly yard is easy and the rewards are fun!
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.
