What is an EcoSystem?
An Ecosystem is all the living and nonliving things in an environment.
Your Yard is an EcoSystem!
Keep it healthy by following these tips...
by Stacey Marcell, Licensed Arborist
Our world is made up of a network of tiny interlocked ecosystems. If you want to change the world in a positive way, you don't have to think globally. You can make a larger impact just by keeping your personal ecosystem as healthy as can be. Each person making sure their own ecosystem is healthy will cause positive changes on a larger scale.

1. Plant native plants.
Native plants provide food sources, reproductive areas and shelter for birds, bees, insects and small mammals.

2. Create micro habitats.
A micro habitat is an ecologically vital and visually interesting substitute for the traditional flowerbed.
