You can invite wildlife back to your own yard and local area by creating a habitat with a combination of food, water, shelter, and space arranged to meet the needs of wildlife. Imagine your yard teeming with beautiful flowers, singing songbirds, colorful butterflies, flitting hummingbirds, and other small wildlife.
