In these uncertain times, nature has never been more important. Gardening is a great way to connect with the outdoors and help us discover our wildlife neighbors. Here are four easy ways you and your family can enjoy nature at home and create healthy, beautiful spaces to relax and unwind.
Attracting wildlife to your garden starts with seed. Botanical Interests provides organic, non-GMO and open-pollinated seed for sustainable food gardens and wildlife habitats.

Whether you’re gardening for food, beauty, or to support local wildlife, the National Wildlife Federation’s Nature Guide app series will help you do all this and more.
With the Winged Wonders apps, you'll learn how to identify the bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators that visit flowers for nectar, allowing plants to both reproduce and form the seeds, berries, fruits, and nuts that we enjoy. Or try the Trees app to identify the trees in and around your neighborhood.
