Drum roll please. . . our backyard is now a certified wildlife habitat with the National Wildlife Federation. Establishing eco-friendly landscaping and setting up feeders for birds are two of the easy ways to help stave off the detrimental effects of poor town planning and suburban sprawl. A nationwide campaign to 'green' American backyards makes a lot of sense as birds across the country are losing habitat and not just those living in the Gulf. Acting locally doesn't get much closer than this.
