Texas Wildscapes: Gardening for Wildlife
New edition of the popular Texas Parks & Wildlife book, now with fully searchable DVD containing all the plant and animal information you need to customize your backyard habitat.
Whether you have an apartment balcony or a multi-acre ranch, the Texas Wildscapes(tm) program provides the tools you need to make a home for all the animals that will thrive in the native habitat you create.
In Texas Wildscapes, Kelly Conrad Bender identifies the kinds of animals you can expect when you give them their three basic needs: food, water, and shelter. She then provides guidelines for designing and planting your yard or garden to best provide these requirements for the many birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates the environment will attract.
For those thousands of people already familiar with the old edition of Texas Wildscapes, the new book with its accompanying, easily navigable DVD will be a welcome supplement, providing a wealth of plant and animal lists, tables, pictures, and other detailed information in a fully searchable format.
This book can also help you earn official recognition for your conservation efforts from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Successful applicants will receive a personalized certificate and have the opportunity to receive a weatherproof sign for their landscaping accomplishments, as detailed in the book.
