|Why not display your sign?|
I saw this sign, prominently displayed on a mailbox) on a garden tour today (this garden wasn't on the tour). But, it had me thinking about it.
The National Wildlife Federation's Backyard Wildlife Program (based here in the U.S.) is a long-running program, and it's evolved into quite a nice one -- encouraging native plants to support native wildlife (unlike in the earlier years of their campaign).
It's a bit of a gimmick, certainly; you as the homeowner go down a checklist about your garden, pay something for the sign, and bingo, you're a certified wildlife habitat. But it's encouraging, too, so I'm supportive of their efforts -- they've tried to go beyond yards to neighborhoods and communities (college campuses, too). These are all good things!
