CT DEP: Gift Giving

CT Wildlife books

The DEP offers two booklets suggested for giving as gifts; but I think I want them for myself!

Enhancing Your Backyard for Wildlife

This 28-page booklet, with 19 outstanding color photographs, discusses methods of assessing wildlife habitat on your property and provides information on how to attract wildlife to your backyard. To order, send a check or money order for $3 (payable to the DEP Urban Wildlife program) to: Urban Wildlife Program, P.O. Box 1550, Burlington, CT 06103-1550.

Discover Wildlife in Connecticut’s Backyard

This 40-page guide for making backyards more attractive to wildlife is an unusual value. Containing information on landscaping and nest boxes, as well as recommendations fro winter foods and feeding strategies for many backyard wildlife species, the guide is a companion piece to a colorful poster entitled, 'Winter Picnics are for the Birds.' This set, which also includes a checklist of Connecticut’s 429 wildlife species, is available for only $5.00.

These books look lovely!

The one great thing about being the home owner is you get to decide when, where, and which wildlife to attract.

Enjoy!
