Many years ago a Chickadee changed the course of my life’s work. This tiny bird is bold and persistent, and it set me on a journey of learning how to share our spaces with the wildlife around us.
I learned that the best thing that we could do for birds and other wildlife was to create and restore habitat for them, and that our gardens could play a crucial role in this. Gardeners really could make a difference by making better choices and learning to give a little back to wildlife.
Thanks to that persistent little Chickadee, an avid birder was born. I traveled around learning as much as I could about birds and the habitats they lived in. In addition, a passionate wildlife gardener was also born.
