By creating your ‘Garden for Wildlife’, even if is just a few plantings or designating a small corner of your garden, you can contribute to bringing nature home, by encouraging wildlife to share your garden within a healthy environment.
Providing habitat in the garden is not only valuable in itself, it can also link to habitat nearby, providing safe corridors or ‘stepping stones‘, along which animals can move from place to place.
Creating a garden to attract birds, frogs, lizards, insects and other animals doesn’t necessarily mean having a garden with ‘scraggy’ native vegetation. Your garden can be as formal or informal as you wish – for instance, you may wish to retain exotic plants or keep a vegetable garden. The object is simply to provide a natural haven for local wildlife.
Gardens for Wildlife currently operates under the auspices of Friends of Willow Park – we are currently planning our future direction and programming. If you would like to assist in any way, please contact above.
