The Holiday Wildlife Garden

Snow Wren

It’s that time of year when holiday preparations are well under way, but don’t forget your wildlife garden (and your wildlife gardener friends) during this time!

Gifts for the Wildlife Gardener

This year I’m being a Hobbit for wildlife for the holidays, by giving something back to wildlife and some amazing local organizations dedicated to protecting habitat and making a better place for our feathered, furred, and winged friends. A gift in your loved ones name to one of these organizations is a wonderful way to share the love.

My dedicated and passionate teams of writers at Beautiful Wildlife Garden and Native Plants and Wildlife Gardens have collectively authored 53 books about wildlife gardening, nature, sustainable landscaping, and so much more. We greatly appreciate your supporting their work. I’m sure you’ll find the perfect gift to share with your friends and family from among this list.

My teams have also come up with an amazing list of their “Must Read” books. Books that have inspired them, stretched their minds, and provided much food for thought. There’s some old standbys and lots of newly released books you’ll want to be sure to add to your bookshelf.
