One of my favorite things about living in Lake Norman is the incredible variety and numbers of colorful birds, butterflies and furry critters. Creating a “Certified Wildlife Habitat” garden is easy and very rewarding! Every time I look out our windows I feel like I am in a Disney world alive with Golden Finches (above), Cardinals, Blue Birds, Hummingbirds, Chickadees…the list goes on and on. Of course, we also attract deer, chipmunks, bunnies and squirrels with their own feeders although one day the squirrel above decided it would be fun to join the birds!
This Saturday, October 1st, you can learn all about how to qualify your own garden (it is SO easy), learn about Native Plants from local experts, learn how to attract wildlife and prepare your garden at the Wild Over Lake Norman! Backyard Wildlife Fair which is being held from 11am-3pm at Duke Power’s Energy Explorium on Hwy 73 at the south end of Lake Norman. (At the McGuire Nuclear Station). There will be plenty of children’s activities plus exhibits on native plants, birds and butterflies.
I will be at the Wild Over Lake Norman! Certified Habitat Garden booth from 1pm-3pm so drop by and say hi! Here is More:
