Backyard Wildlife Conservation

I love gardening, wildlife, and conservation.

I found a program that is the perfect merging of all these things. I believe that one individual can make a difference. I also believe that a lot of individuals can help even more.

I think that what the National Wildlife Federation is organizing is wonderful, and I want to be a part of it. This summer, I will be busy planting native plants in my garden and logging all the beautiful birds and butterflies it attracts.

The first step: taking an inventory of all the plants in my yard and labeling either "Exotic, invasive, or native."
