Backyard Wildlife Habitat: Great Nature Slideshow

By , July 14, 2007 4:05 pm


One of my readers, Meeyauw, apparently enjoyed my post on creating a National Wildlife Federation backyard wildlife habitat enough to actually do this project with her grandson, Wingnut. (Wow, somebody was really interested in what I had to say! What a nice feeling!).

She and Wingnut created a totally wonderful slideshow (complete with great music that makes me want to dance) of their nature hike around Meeyauw’s property with cat Buddy. They photographed various habitat elements that they came across, and also took many photos of Buddy enjoying himself tremendously.

Meeyauw’s gorgeous Barton, Vermont property appears to need no adjustments for certification, and that cool sign should be on her barn in no time. Caves, natural springs, glacial boulders, trees, ferns…suffice it to say that when I die I want to be reincarnated as any form of “wildlife” whatsoever and live happily ever after on her property!

Thank you to Meeyauw and Wingnut for your great slideshow. I hope that anyone reading this will stop by Meeyauw’s blog and watch the slideshow. Maybe you’ll be inspired to try this yourself! If you do, please let me know.

By the way, check out the National Wildlife Federation’s site called Green Hour for some information and ideas for getting kids outside and into nature.

    You have an amazing website here- I’ll be looking around for days! I’ve always meant to have our yard certified as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat, and you’ve reminded me to see what we need to do to get our cool sign! The Green Hour site looks really interesting- I have a terrible time getting outside with my daughter at this time of year because it gets really hot and humid here, so I’m always looking for new ideas. Keep up the great work! :o)
