Winter Gardening Tips for Wildlife
Make your garden a haven for wildlife this winter and the future with 4 easy steps:
1. Provide food for wildlife with native plants that offer acorns, berries and seeds.
2. Clean and fill your birdbath on a regular basis. If you live in an area where water freezes, invest in a birdbath heater.
3. When you finish with your Christmas tree anchor it in a secluded part of your yard and wildlife will use it as shelter from winter weather and storms.
4. You can provide additional cover for wildlife by starting a compost pile or brush pile with pine needle, pinecones and wreaths from your holiday decorations.
Remember your backyard wildlife during the winter and year round. They will appreciate it!
