Spend thirty minutes exploring Sapsucker Woods to learn ways to create and sustain habitat at home. Simple strategies, such as mowing around the edges of your lawn, while leaving the grass to develop seed heads for birds, are demonstrated using the Sapsucker Woods landscape as a model. Begin the tour infront of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's Vistor Center at the Birdfeeder Garden.
This tour was created by the Habitat Network, a citizen science project designed to cultivate a richer understanding of wildlife habitat, for both professional scientists and people concerned with their local environments. We collect data by asking individuals across the country to literally draw maps of their backyards, parks, farms, favorite birding locations, schools, and gardens. We connect you with your landscape details and provide tools for you to make better decisions about how to manage landscapes sustainably.
