A free wildflower seed packet is a small first step, but if you are interested in really putting your property to work for pollinators consider this list of actions and in-depth look at our bees
We know pollinators need habitat to thrive--can you commit just a little more space for a new pollinator patch? Each of us has a role we can play in stitching together vibrant, healthy habitat for our butterflies, bees, birds, bats, and various other pollinating wildlife.
Not all birds eat the same foods. There is immense variation in the diet of different bird species, as well as seasonal variation within a single species; that is, birds often eat different foods in the winter than in the summer. Here we focus on one source of food in one season: berries in winter.
Tree canopy is the layer of leaves, branches, and stems of trees that cover the ground when viewed from above. Each species of tree has its own unique shape, size, and color, but all of them contribute to the overall tree canopy–benefiting wildlife and people, alike.
Do you want a soft, wildlife-friendly, lawn that uses minimal water, requires no pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers, and will never need to be mowed? Grow a moss lawn!
Moss will grow practically anywhere--shade, sun, partial sun/shade, wet, semi-arid, etc. Learn about the ecological benefits of encouraging it in our yards.
There are many reasons we are faced with the need to plant something new but it is a good problem to have because it gives you the opportunity to improve the space, aesthetically and ecologically, to your benefit as well as the wildlife it could potentially attract.
