The natural wildlife habitat has been altered and eliminated locally and on a global scale by human activity. Species dependent on this habitat, such as birds, butterflies, and other wildlife, are pushed into ever-shrinking wilderness areas at great detriment to their future sustainability. With some small landscape modifications, you can make a difference! 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.
