  • Educate residents on the value of attracting wildlife to their landscape and community.

  • Add plants that provides habitat, shelter and/or food sources for wildlife.
  • Plant host and nectar plants for butterflies, hummingbirds and/or other pollinators.
  • Install plants including natives that produce fruit, nuts, and berries to provide food for our wild friends.
  • Plant a variety of trees, shrubs and groundcovers that increase vertical layering (layers of vegetation).
  • Allow plants to grow to their natural form, don’t over prune.
