PresentationsCreating a Backyard Habitat by Daniel Schultz
Dan will describe Greater Longfellow’s efforts to become a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat by 2021.Learn how you can make a difference by helping wildlife and your community at the same time! Dan will describe lawn and garden techniques for making a yard wildlife friendly, and share practices to help you enjoy and connect with the birds and butterflies in our own backyards.
Presenter Bio: DANIEL SCHULTZ, National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat Leader. In 2009, hearing Douglas Tallamy talk about his book “Bringing Nature Home,” it became clear that the cherished woods and wildlife of the U.S. were in peril, and something had to be done about it. Dan trained as a Master Naturalist volunteer, and thanks to buckthorn pulls at local and regional parks, the poor quality of even our few remaining wild spaces became evident. He is currently leading an effort to encourage everyone to make their yards wildlife friendly and to register as Certified Wildlife Habitats through the National Wildlife Federation. By re-connecting people to nature in their own backyards, the world can be a better place for humans and wildlife.
