Creating a Healthy Backyard Habitat

Wishing you could experience nature in your own backyard? The Backyards for Nature slide show will teach you how to attract birds, butterflies and other wildlife. You will be given suggestions for providing food water, cover, and places to raise young, the four elements required by all living things. Use of native plants, because they offer superior support for wildlife, will be emphasized. Information will be provided about how to get your yard certified as a Natural Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

Led by Barb Elliot, Ph.D., and Edie Parnum

Barb and Edie are Co-Directors of Backyards for Nature, a program of the Valley Forge Audubon Society. Both have received training in gardening for wildlife and are certified as Habitat Stewards by the National Wildlife Federation. Barb is an amateur researcher for the North American Bat House Project of the Bat Conservation International. Edie writes a column, Birding from my doorway, for the Birding Club of Delaware County newsletter.
