Believe it or not, both predators and prey need locations that provide cover. All types of wildlife require cover from inclement weather, too. That’s why The Backyard Naturalists share with you the many ways you can intentionally (and unintentionally) provide cover for the guests of your Certified Wildlife Habitat.

If you’d like more information on how you can turn your garden, backyard or green space into a Certified Wildlife Habitat, please visit the National Wildlife Federation on the web.

Connect with the Backyard Naturalists on the web, Facebook or Instagram.
