WASHINGTON — A wildlife habitat garden: something Roxanne Paul of the National Wildlife Federation knows a lot about.
At the U.S. Botanical Gardens in Washington, D.C., Paul explained how to build your own habitat garden.
“It’s a site that provides food, water, cover, and places to raise young for wildlife, and it also employs at least two sustainable or environmentally friendly practices in gardening,” said Paul. “It’s a wonderful way for people to connect with nature.”
Gardening for wildlife means you’ll get to see beautiful butterflies and birds as well as have a vibrant yard filled with native plants. Start your own wildlife habitat today with NWF’s help.
