Landscaping for Wildlife

This premiere episode explores different options and strategies people can use to landscape for wildlife. The program includes interviews with homeowners who have successfully blended human and wildlife needs. Viewers get a first-hand look at several "green" developments and receive information on various design and management options.

The program also features an interview with the Alachua County Department of Environmental Protection about a county-wide effort to preserve natural areas. This conservation effort was funded by a local tax (voted for by citizens) and money is used to purchase wildlife habitat throughout the county.
