Contributions to Nature

Post by MajesticWolfs » Sun Jun 28, 2009 12:28 pm

Have you ever been on a hike? Have you ever made your backyard, frontyard, or garden a suitable living place for the creatures living there?
Here you can discuss your contributions to nature and what you have done. It can be from growing a garden, replanting a tree, making an area suitable for wildlife in your neighborhood.

I myself have planted a Butterfly and Humming Bird garden, and now I have plenty of Hummingbirds and Butterflies in my frontyard.

What have you done?

Isn't this more for Take Action topic?

Anyways, I have planted several trees, unfortunately I don't remember the names of them. My backyard is full of birds and nests since I have a lot of trees and seeds are all around the place (I have domestic birds outside, so when they eat, some of the seeds fly away with the wind or they just fall from the cages.). Etc.

My dad and I just got finished setting up a bird and humming bird feeder in our back yard. And we have a small pond there and our house is by a creek so in my pond there is a turtle who descided to make his home there. We also have a flower bed in my front yard that attracts lots of butterflys and bugs. The good thing about this topic today is that tommrow in my neighborhood we all go out side and fix up our lawns. We like to have pretty things in my hood. :mrgreen:

Hm... Well we have a bird in our backyard that made its nest there. We make sure the dogs are blocked off from her.
But I've never really made a birds nest....
Well I take that back. I have. But I never have put it up.

Well, when I was 7(or 8) years old, I lived in an apartment...

There was a female white stray cat who lived in the apartment, and I think she ate garbage when she could. I came close slowly so I wouldn't scare the cat when I came back from school, and I would pull out anything which I didn't eat and give it to the cat. At one time, I went up to my flat, asked my mum for a bowl and milk, then brought it down for the cat to drink. After a while though, the cat just stopped coming. I wanted to adopt the cat when I had a chance, but my mum is allergic to cats.

A couple of my friends noticed that this huge tree that we like to hang out at had some broken glass and empty soda/beer cans, so we got gloves (didn't feel like cutting ourselves on the glass) and picked it up. It looks much better now, and I'm glad we did it (it was pretty fun).

Me and my family are laying acorns EVERYWHERE in our yard for squirrels.
:) :D :mrgreen:
Note: ALWAYS WEAR YOUR SHOES WHEN OUTSIDE!!!
Sometimes, I clear some acorns, curl up, and then, try to sleep.
It's VERY comfortable.

I actually can't recall exactly what I've done, but my family's ethier built/replaced birdhouses before, and we've planted some trees (only to make our yard a bit less 'open', should I say)

I live on eight acres of over grown forest, so you could say the last thing we need is more trees. xD However my family has used up nearly 150 (or more, not sure) pounds of sugar trying to feed our humming birds; you could say we are the summer-round breeding and nesting place of the hummers. In the winter we feed the birds a cornmeal and fat mix in a recycled Christmas tree stump that has become our bird feeder. We also, every Christmas, go out into the woods with strings of corn and other animal treats to decorate a tree and then leave it for the birds and small animals to eat.

I used to live on about an acre of land, in front of a creek. Some people would go down there a lot and throw their Gatorade bottles and chip bags in the river and jsut other trash, and every few days or so I would go down, pick up their trash, and either recycle it or throw it away. They never knew who did it, and I never saw them; but it gave me something to do that I felt proud of.

Of course, now we've moved and I live tight-knit in a little neighborhood, and the only thin I can do is spill some water in the birdbath and water the plants. :roll:

There is always an opportunity to go above and beyond, no matter where you live. :D

I've planted seven trees so far. Instead of planting a lawn, the native grasses were allowed to grow in. The cottontails and killdeer love it. :D
