Episode Details

This premiere episode explores different options and strategies you can use to landscape for wildlife. The program includes interviews with homeowners who have successfully blended human and wildlife needs. You'll 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 (approved by voters). These funds are used to purchase wildlife habitat throughout the county.
