We got our first snow of the year yesterday! Sadly it’s not really enough to build forts or go snowshoeing. In the meantime, here are some recent wildlife and conservation tidbits from elsewhere on the internet, two by me and four courtesy of others.
- Creating a Wildlife-Friendly Yard With Native Plants, my first post as a regular contributor to Living Alongside Wildlife. (Please consider following this excellent website on Twitter or Facebook, or subscribing to new posts via email, which you can do on the homepage.)
- The Inaugural Legacy Awards: Honoring Three Inspiring Young Women, a post I wrote for the Children & Nature Network blog about an event I attended in Kennewick, WA last month. (I’m going to be helping run social media for their Natural Leaders program, so you can further support the stuff I do by following Natural Leaders on Twitter and Facebook as well.)
By other folks:
- Not sure how long this is continuing for, but the Central Puget Sound chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society is currently having a seed sale. If you live in the Northwest and are interested in adding native plants to your yard (and up for the challenge of germinating them yourself), maybe check it out.
- Pregnant Snake Prepares for Motherhood by Eating Toxic Toads, from Ed Yong of Not Exactly Rocket Science.
- Robins, Waxwings, and Honeysuckle, from Jim McCormac of Ohio Birds and Biodiversity.
- Red-tailed Hawk Eating Breakfast, from 10,000 Birds.
