Wild About Gardening

-- Quote of the Day --

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

-William Blake


-- Wild About Gardening --

Global warming is also having an impact on all kinds of wildlife. Species are changing their ranges, migrating and bearing young sooner…

Did you know that native plants are the best choice for a wildlife-friendly garden? Don’t forget water sources for the little critters (a pond or even a tiny fountain that splashes some water up on rocks or gravel will be all you need). Leave some areas bare – many pollinators are ground dwellers and they enjoy gravel, open ground and sometimes, bush piles or a log.

Check out the wildaboutgardening.org site for posters and fun education projects for families, groups, seniors & schools; including: Project Wild, Below Zero, Learning About Wildlife, Learning about Watersheds, pollinator counts and bird watching programs… wildlife rehabilitation projects and urban greening can all be discovered here. Also check out the sister site – cwf-fcf.org for the Canadian Wildlife Federation. More than 100 school habitat projects were funded by wildeducation.org
