SCWF held a wildlife habitat workshop at the SC Aquarium on March 14th, and participants learned information about creating and enhancing wildlife habitat by planting native plants, providing a water source, and adding feeders, nest boxes, etc. and how their own yards can be certified by the National Wildlife Federation. In partnership with the South Carolina Aquarium, and with support from Volvo and Roots N Shoots Nursery, they also installed native plants in front of the Aquarium which provide food, cover and places to raise young for pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. This garden serves a demonstration for visitors to learn how to attract wildlife to their own garden.
Most people feel helpless when it comes to saving the forests around the world, but there are so many things you can do right in your own backyard and community to create wildlife habitat and make a big difference. The S.C. Wildlife Federation (SCWF) partners with the National Wildlife Federation to provide recommendations for creating and enhancing wildlife habitat in backyards as well as at schools, businesses, parks and throughout entire communities.
