Friday Film:: My suburban front yard wildlife garden
This short video mixes photographs and short video clips which demonstrate the beauty of a suburban wildlife garden. It also offers a stark comparison to a house with the more commonly seen lawn front yard. This garden is certified at National Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat and also includes a Pollinator Habitat sign from the Xerces Society. Among the variety of wildlife to be found in this garden are many species of butterflies, featured in each stage of their life, as well as moths, bees and other insects.
