Hi from National Wildlife Federation Habitat Ambassadors!
It’s rewarding to see what creatures have found benefits from your yard. I watch for tracks in fresh snow before I step. Some common Ohio tracks can be seen at Ohio Dept of Natural Resources track examples. Scroll down to the second page and the answers are upside down.
What difference does your yard make? Read this short 2-page article called Gardening for Wildlife by Douglas Tallamy, who will be speaking at the Ohio Botanical Symposium (See ‘Nature Stuff’ below for details on that event)
The Annual Franklin County Soil And Water Conservation District Tree, Fish and Wildflower Sale. Orders need to be in by 3/26. order by mail or online using the link.
Curious about organic lawn care? Try to find books at the library, such as The Organic Lawn Care Manual by Paul Tuckey. This flyer has some information on the left (corn gluten is organic): Environmentally Friendly Lawn and Garden Care. Google the web for organic lawn care, here’s a start: Ohioline OSU Extension Fact Sheet
Thanks for helping backyard wildlife!
