  • FOR KIDS WILDLIFE HABITAT CONTEST Hello It s easy to enter There is no specific entry form as each habitat is different and has its own good features The most important thing to remember is that the habitat needs to have the four basic and necessary items to help our native wildlife who might need a little assistance in our state that is being developed so rapidly food water cover and a place to bear young Food supplied can be berries on a native plant filled bird feeders fruit or other suitable edibles left where the critters can find it whatever you know will add to their nutrition presented in a way that it is available to them Water can be a natural pond or stream a fountain a mud puddle for butterflies a clean birdbath with fresh water Cover means safe places they can reach to hide when they are threatened That might be a nearby tree for birds a rock pile or a brush pile for lizards an overturned broken flowerpot for toads Places to breed and bear young can be shrubs and trees for building nests in the correct milk weed plants for butterflies to lay their eggs on a wood pile for rabbits to nest in These are the simplest things and many of them are already there in nature Of course there are many more elaborate ways to supply these things for our animal friends Just make your habitat a safe and pleasant place for them to be Then just send us an email or a letter describing your habitat and how it is used by wildlife and what the kids involved are learning there Photographs of the habitat are helpful and best of all when you can capture one a photo of a critter
