What plants and animals have you seen in your backyard?

White oak, persimmon, black cherry, white ash. Spring avens, Carex texensis; 11 species of mammals-- all on a 1/4 acre lot on a street with 16,000 cars per day.

What have you done to help them and encourage more?

The front yard is a butterfly garden. In the rear has a small pool, shrubs, old trees, and lightly mown lawn of mostly native species.

What are your favorites? Got pictures? Share them!

The wood frogs that arrived at the small pool last year. I'll post a picture of the tadpoles practicing their breathing.


I'm a professional ecologist, temporarily visiting your group to look at photos and meet people.
