"People want to attract wildlife to their yards for a variety of reasons, but probably foremost among these is that birds and other animals bring us pleasure. The exuberant songs of cardinals and mockingbirds, the playful antics of young squirrels at feeders, and the sight of colorful butterflies dancing above wildflower patches provide us with both daily and lasting joy." from Landscaping for Wildlife.
Through careful landscaping, you can make your property a year-round waystation for a wide variety of animal species, from birds, butterflies, and squirrels to bats, turtles, and opossums. Written by Jeremy D. Garrett in association with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC)
