Anyone can do this – even if you live in an apartment with a balcony/patio! The National Wildlife Federation outlines easy guidelines to do this. Why? Because if enough people do this and pay attention, we will be able to make a positive impact on the ongoing negative assault on our wildlife, pollinators, and much more.
All you need to do is a few simple things like providing food, water, shelter (see list on the NWF website) and then fill out a form. You can then proudly display the sign. Better yet – get a few of your neighbors to do the same!
