Local Wildlife and Our Relationship
You get up in the morning, peer out the kitchen window and see deer grazing, squirrels gathering nuts and birds flitting here and there. It's a beautiful sight, seeing nature in all its glory and we want to preserve that to the utmost degree. However, in order to do this, we must work together to avoid feeding human food to the wildlife that we see daily. By not feeding them, we protect ourselves and maintain their health so that they live happy lives and we can continue to coexist. Our decision to not feed the wildlife human food has far-reaching impacts, which can be extremely helpful to our area as a whole. See the links and poster below to learn more!
