Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0806134895, Paperback)"People want to attract wildlife to their yards for a variety of reasons, but probably foremost among these is that birds and other animals bring us pleasure. The exuberant songs of cardinals and mockingbirds, the playful antics of young squirrels at feeders, and the sight of colorful butterflies dancing above wildflower patches provide us with both daily and lasting joy."-from Landscaping for Wildlife
Written by Jeremy D. Garrett in association with the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation (ODWC), Landscaping for Wildlife provides beginners and experts alike with specific, detailed, yet easy-to-follow instructions for meeting water needs, feeding preferences, and nesting requirements of wildlife species found in the southern Great Plains. Garrett also explains how specific plants draw animals to your property by providing food and shelter sources.
To assist readers in designing their own "wildscape," detailed diagrams and plant listings accompany photographs of several ODWC-certified wildscaped properties. A woodworking section includes patterns of nesting and feeding stations designed for individual wildlife species. Garrett's explanations and advice are complemented by Coral McCallister's elegant and charming illustrations of wildlife as well as of various habitats and wildscapes.
The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation manages Oklahoma's wildlife resources and habitat to provide scientific, educational, aesthetic, economic, and recreational benefits for present and future generations of hunters, anglers, and others who appreciate wildlife.
