This is an amazing and inspirational program that helped me create a wildlife haven out of a previously barren yard. I spend many hours now just gawking at so many various species of birds, insects, and spiders, many that I'd never seen before! I watch butterflies lay eggs in checker mallow buds and get up real close to crab spiders catching prey in my native meadow. I feel proud when I hear the crickets chirping loudly on hot summer nights, knowing they've found a place to thrive. We hear the whistling of beautiful cedar waxwing visitors while they gobble down osoberry and serviceberries. And, we now have the pleasure of hosting downy woodpecker chicks in our newly dead walnut tree (with plans to snag it once they fledge). All of this is incredibly entertaining and so rewarding. This program is the best way to start everyone off with naturescaping, as well as keeping us up on new ways to sustain and improve the healthy habitats we create. So much joy!
