Saturday is Earth Day . . .

. . . as every day should be. One way to participate in this world-wide observance is to go to the sidebar and scroll down to click the butterfly image for a link to The National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife web site. There you’ll to learn how to plant a beautiful garden that helps shelter and feed a variety of creatures, including Monarch butterflies.

And maybe you like to build things. If so, stop in at East Haddam Free Public Library and ask your earth-friendly librarian to print out plans for building either a one chamber or four chamber bat house – or both!

Bats are nature’s nocturnal pest control: safe, effective and free!

Have fun!
