Extensive urban growth over the last few decades has had a significant impact on habitat that birds and other wildlife once called home. You, as a homeowner, have a unique opportunity to curtail this loss of habitat by creating your own backyard wildlife sanctuary.

NatureScaping of Southwest Washington is a non-profit, all volunteer, educational organization whose goal is to educate and encourage homeowners to make their yards and gardens a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.

Membership above the $20 level will support maintaining the gardens fencing, irrigation, educational materials and more.

Homestead Garden

Homestead Garden

This garden is about feeding people and wildlife.

Here you'll find raised beds full of vegetables and fruit growing on vines for the gardener, complete with a scarecrow that doesn't scare anybody.

You'll also see some very pretty plants that feed wildlife such as the beautiful Chinese Lanterns (Physalis alkekengi.)

This is the perfect place to learn how to combine food growing and wildlife habitat in a small space.

The Homestead Garden includes the KISSS sub-surface watering system. Stop by often and see how it's working.
