If you haven’t checked out eNature.com, now’s the time. The website has been acquired by the National Wildlife Federation and offers a tremendous resource and tools for exploring Bay Area nature. Local-Guides on the site provide you with a zip-code-based photographic primer on the wildlife common in any area, including birds, wildflowers, mammals, and butterflies. The site also offers a Backyard Wildlife Habitat Planner that identifies the resources you’ll need to transform your garden into rich habitat for native creatures. Of course, you still have to do the digging and planting!
