Providing these habitat elements is all you need to create habitat for wildlife today:

FOOD Native plants provide wildlife with a buffet of nectar, pollen, nuts, seeds, berries and more. Plant diversity increases the number of species found in your habitat.

WATER A reliable water source is a key element for a variety of wildlife. Animals need water for drinking and some need it for breeding.

COVER Evergreen shrubs and stacked rock walls are two ways to offer wildlife shelter from predators and bad weather. Layers of vegetation also ensure safe places for critters.

PLACES TO RAISE YOUNG Dense shrubs, a nesting box or pond are examples of places wildlife need to mate and raise their young.

SUSTAINABLE GARDENING PRACTICES How you manage your garden can have an effect on the health of the world around you.  Techniques like capturing rain water, xeriscaping, mulching, avoiding pesticides, and composting are just a few examples of how you can make your garden conservation-savvy!
