A connection for life

Updated: Nov 1, 2022

Ecosystem. It's a term by now that everyone should be familiar with. National Geographic defines an ecosystem as "a geographic area where plants, animals, and other organisms, as well as weather and landscape, work together to form a bubble of life." Everything in nature is connected. From the smallest micro-organism in the soil, to the largest mammal. What can each of us do to help? Create a natural environment. Plant the native plants that provide a food source and habitat. Garden organically by not using chemical fertilzers, herbicides, and pesticides. Build the nesting boxes. If we all just do even one of these things, we are helping to sustain an ecosystem, and make it stronger.
