Q: We saw a TV show about wildlife sanctuaries. We have three acres of land with ponds, birdhouses, all sorts of flowers, vegetables, and a virtual forest in front of the house. How can we be certified as a wildlife sanctuary?
A: Garden expert Daryl Pulis (www.MrsGreenThumb.com), says your first stop should be the National Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat website, xrl.us/HABITATS. It’s easy to be certified on-line. The Atlanta Audubon Society also certifies gardens as wildlife sanctuaries. Here is more information: http://www.atlantaaudubon.org/aaswww/conservation/sanctuary.htm
