Creating Backyard HabitatsApr 12, 2014 in Press Releases
It is fitting that on Earth Day, Terri Lane, Executive Director of the Northwest Arkansas Land Trust will speak at Hobbs State Park on Creating Back Yard Habitats for some of our northwest Arkansas wildlife.
A habitat is a place where species get what they need to survive: food, water, shelter, and a place to raise young. In other words, a habitat is an animal's home.
According to Lane, “You don’t have to have a large property or live in the woods to provide critical habitat for wildlife! Urban landscapes can be both attractive to people and beneficial to wildlife.” Lane further added, “When we provide for the specific needs of wildlife throughout our community, we create neighborhoods that are healthier and more enjoyable for everyone – neighborhoods where green space is enhanced, water quality is preserved, and where families can enjoy the rich diversity of life right outside their door.”
The Friends of Hobbs State Park invites the public to this FREE program. Learn how to enhance the back yard habitat in your small place on this earth.
