Let’s celebrate gardening for wildlife month by attracting birds, butterflies, and other backyard wildlife to your gardens. In this post, I share highlights from this National Wildlife Federation publication.
Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife Book Review
Find this video on my Creative Living with Bren Haas YouTube Channel. Thank you for watching my video today. I hope you will consider purchasing one of your own from Amazon at Birds, Butterflies and other Backyard Wildlife by David Mizejewski.
This book was a gift to me from the Author. I actually had the opportunity to interview him in person back in 2012 at a wildlife event.
Highlights of the Book
The book is a nice paperback measuring roughly 8″x10″. Color images and easy to read the text. One of my favorite topics in the book is the section featuring easy to create family projects. There is even a how to create a birdbath out of a stump in your backyard! You will find creative ideas about container water gardens and dealing with the puddle and muddy areas. Lots of ideas for creating spaces in any size backyard for wildlife to take cover… including a really cool nest box project for the family to do together.
AND I JUST ADORER the bee nesting house I use in my home garden!
Designing your wildlife habitat is my second favorite section of the book .. it takes you step by step from assessing your property to what native plants to purchase in your zone!
My Opinion Of The Book
Your backyard can come alive with plants that welcome wildlife – everything from butterflies, songbirds and lively toads. The book is perfect for all ages – National Wildlife Federations – Attracting Birds Butterflies and other backyard wildlife filled with over a dozen project for families to do together. Creative Education – for sure!
