We’ve dug deep and replanted. We’ve redirected and made new paths. We’ve added glorious flowers and interesting wildlife. And now our website is complete!
Come check out the newly redesigned Wild About Gardening website at WildAboutGardening.org, where you can find all of the great content you’ve come to expect from WAG as well as new features and functions to help you share your ideas.
We’ve made the focal point of our “garden” the Seasonal Gardening Guide, the quarterly online gardening magazine full of tips, advice and ideas for making your gardens wildlife friendly. Read “The Editor’s Bench,” a primer on what’s new this season or any of the feature stories filled with gardening and wildlife ideas for your backyard. Browse through our departments, which highlight a specific creature, plant, garden or nursery each season.
Also on WAG, discover community gardening advice or how to go green in your gardens. Search through our database of animals or plants to identify the critter out your window or to learn more about the species you want in your garden. Plan your new garden project using our Design and Garden Planning section or get tips on how to properly maintain what you’ve already got with Garden Care. Does your thumb lack that tinge of green? Check out The Basics, a getting-started section of WAG that includes basic information for the beginning gardener on soils, seasons and plants.Share! Find new features such as forums to share your gardening tips and tools to upload your fabulous garden photos and help build the online Native Plant Encyclopedia. Also, check out our FAQs on problem wildlife, or ask Maria, editor of the Seasonal Gardening Guide and manager of the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat program.
We want to continue our conversation with you on gardening for wildlife, so WAG has introduced our blog, called Gardening Gab. Updated regularly, this online journal brims with tips, ideas, photos and podcasts on how to spruce up your garden for the birds, the bees and all of nature’s critters. Comment on each entry or tell us your thoughts and help keep the discussion on gardening for wildlife going.
Wild About Gardening is part of the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat Program, which encourages Canadians to help wildlife by building viable habitat on their own properties and in their communities.
