Creating and restoring butterfly habitat offsets what development, roadside mowing or wetland drainage have destroyed. (Gardening pesticide-free helps, too.) Whether you have a small plot in the big city or a few acres, transform your yard into a butterfly garden! Many butterfly species don’t migrate. You can provide habitat and food for their entire life cycle — eggs, larvae, pupae AND adults — throughout the year. Think beyond providing flowers for nectar in the height of summer.

Manicured lawns are a desert for pollinators (and most wildlife). But you can make your yard or garden a pollinator paradise! In spring, leave twig piles and bare ground. Come summer, let veggies bolt. Provide a source of water and don’t rake all the fall leaves. Build homes where pollinators can lay eggs or overwinter. Chances are you’re already taking steps to help pollinators — bees (wild and honeybees), butterflies and birds. That’s great! Not sure? Check your actions against these tips.

Kids who experience nature’s mystery and beauty will grow up caring about protecting it. Being attentive to life helps us better understand and act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and embedded in and indebted to the Earth. Most children are curious explorers, so you don’t need to do much to cultivate their nature connection — just take them outside (rain or shine) and get out of their way!

Boreal caribou are a national icon, with their place on the Canadian quarter, but the truth is they’re not doing well. Increasing pressures from industry and development are putting their homes in Canada’s vast boreal forest at risk. This threatened species deserves our protection not simply because they’re iconic. The truth is, we can’t afford to lose caribou because they’re just plain cool.
