Format: Paperback
Even the most domestic of gardens are living ecosystems that, for best effect, also incorporate insects, birds and small mammals for a well-balanced and dynamic habitat. The latest addition to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden All-Region Guides series, "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is specifically written by horticulturist Janet Marinelli (and former director of publications for the Brooklyn Botanic Garden) to provide aspiring and practicing gardeners with ten beautifully illustrated 'hands-on' wildlife garden projects complete with 'user friendly' step-by-step instructions. "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is a valued on-going reference guide for gardeners with its wealth of practical, real-world tips for turning yards and back lots into eco-havens for birds, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and beneficial insects. Also provided are lists of native plants, organized by region for easy reference, which are found to be especially supportive of (and attractive to) a diversity of wildlife. Enhanced with detailed plans for wildlife-friendly flower borders, container gardens, nest boxes, bat houses, and bee shelters, "The Wildlife Gardener's Guide" is an ideal reference and a welcome, useful, recommended addition to personal, professional, school, and community Wildlife and Gardening instructional guide collections and supplemental reading lists.

Format: Paperback
This is a great guide to attracting wildlife to your backyard. It is pretty basic but gives you information on birds and plants that are easy to implement and follow-thru on.
The pictures are wonderful.
It is geared more to the novice gardner and birdwatcher, but would be enjoyable for anyone interested in these hobbies to read.
It has information for all regions of the USA.

I just moved into my first house with several acres behind it and found this little gem while visiting one of my favorite nature centers. I have always loved and appreciated my local wildlife and am somewhat of a landscaping beginner with big ideas for bird, butterfly, and bee gardens. I can't wait to put this to good use in creating my own little backyard sanctuary! This is definitely a nice little quick reference book worth adding to your library. Enjoy!
