HELP THE BATS
Bats aren’t that much different than us. All they want is a warm home to live in—even if that means moving into yours! Avoid unwanted house guests; this spring, build and install a bat house on your property. Bats are great allies in the fight again insect populations, and building a bat house is easy and inexpensive. It also makes a great conservation project to do with the kids. For free instructions on how build a bat house, and more information on Canada’s at-risk bat populations, visit Helpthebats.ca!
MAKE YOUR GARDEN A FEAST FOR POLLINATORS

The CWF line of Medallion Plants provides a veritable buffet to attract wildlife back to your garden, including important pollinators like bees and butterflies. There are five different Medallion Plant kits in all, each featuring a collection of plants put together to specifically attract song birds, bees and butterflies like the Monarch.
