Wildlife and Your Lawn
We think in terms of how important wildlife is to us -- but it takes a bit of effort to grasp how important our actions and our lawn and garden spaces are to wildlife, especially when we live in urban communities. Here are a few facts about wildlife and their need for habitat conservation -- even if it is a tiny container garden and birdbath on a deck!
Importance of residential landscapes to wildlife conservation
Impacts of invasive exotic plantsIt's hard to know if a favorite plant is a "non-native" that is wrecking havoc on our wildlife habitat and agricultural lands. Getting to know your local plants is a wonderful way to involve your family in an exciting adventure -- learn to recognize and nurture helpful plants -- and to eradicate harmful plants. You will be rewarded by a healthier wildlife and palnt ecosystem!
