Nature in the Yard Project NorthEastern US

Nature in the Yard Project NorthEastern US

Human development has caused unprecedented habitat loss in America and around the world. Because of this, what is left of the natural habitat that once existed is fragmented and separated by roadways, farmland, and buildings. Our yards are often transitional areas between natural environments for many species of animals, which is why the N.I.T.Y. Project aims to make these areas as beneficial as possible to the wildlife which it may be utilized by. Make your yard wildlife friendly, take pictures, and share your experience with us. * Edited by Project Noah management team Sign in to join mission

Make your yard wildlife friendly, take a picture, and share it with us. Do not encourage wildlife to visit your property if there are cats in the area - While cats make great pets, they are killing machines to small animals.
