Meet the Wildlife for National Wildlife Week
As we celebrate the theme of “Living with Wildlife,” we take a look at some of the species that reside in the landscape around cities and suburban areas across the country. Whether they make their homes under bridges, in the tops of trees and grounds of local parks, or the lakes and rivers that also ferry goods and people, we note that we share our homes with some fascinating wildlife.
Each of the wildlife below also call one of our Top 10 Cities for Wildlife home.
