Timberlake Certified Habitat
Posted on Oct 14th, 2019
The Common Area Plan committee identified many objectives for Timberlake common area management. One of these was to pursue designation as a Wildlife Habitat.
In September, we obtained that certification.
Creating a wildlife habitat garden to attract birds, butterflies, and other neighborhood wildlife is fun, rewarding, and makes a big difference. It’s easier than you might think. Here is what your wildlife garden should include:
Food: Native plants provide food eaten by a variety of wildlife. Feeders can supplement natural food sources.
Water: All animals need water to survive, and some need it for bathing or breeding as well.
Cover: Wildlife need places to take shelter from bad weather and places to hide from predators or hunt for prey.
Places to Raise Young: Wildlife need resources to reproduce, and to protect and nourish their young.
Sustainable Practices: Maintain your yard or garden in natural ways to ensure soil, air, and water stay healthy and clean.
