Garden for Wildlife

According to the National Wildlife Federation (NWF), “Private residential property makes up approximately one-third of the urban landscape and studies show that the impact of wildlife gardening is substantial.” What does that mean for us here in Nevada? It means that we have a wonderful opportunity to help wildlife thrive in an ever-changing landscape!

By creating gardens that are Certified Wildlife Habitats, people can help to essentially build corridors that animals can use to move between habitat patches. When you plant native trees, flowers, shrubs and more, these gardens help critters by providing them with habitat, food, water, cover, as well as places to raise their young!
