Turning your yard into a haven for wildlife

Written by 

Learn how to put together a backyard habitat March 28 at 7 p.m. at the Rickman Store in Macon County’s Cowee community.

The program, led by Deborah Boots, is sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation and is titled, “Attracting Wildlife.” Five components will be taught and explained: food, water, places to raise young, cover and sustainable gardening.

Both families and communities can attain Habitat Certification by learning and working on a variety of habitat restoration projects. The series of lectures and workshops on “Gardening for Wildlife” organized by the Friends of the Rickman Store this year will support these efforts by providing monthly lectures, field trips and workshops at the store the second Monday of each month, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. May to November.
