National Wildlife Federation naturalist and spokesperson, David Mizejewski, returns to Green is Good to promote Garden for Wildlife Month, which takes place each May. The NWF urges everyone to spend May in their gardens with an ecological lens. Consider what your garden provides for local wildlife and how it can be bettered to thrive in its natural environment. Mizejewski names native plants as the backbone of creating a wildlife-friendly garden.
“Even though gardens are green, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they are environmentally friendly,” Mizejewski says. “There are some really fun things you can do that will make your yard fit better into the local environment and attract backyard wildlife. Learn from Mother Nature, and mimic that in your yard. This program is designed to help people get outside, and you really will find out that nature is all around you.”
