  • To read about it, click on this link
  • Click on the link “Download the Checklist” within the above page, at the end of the third paragraph. It is a Garden for Wildlife Checklist with the elements we need to provide food, water, cover and places to raise young. Hint: First U already has all 4 elements, can you name them? We will be adding more in 2021

Is there enthusiasm for this project? – Yes, thank you to the ten people who responded to our first call for volunteers! There is still plenty of room for you to help plan this winter, and/or dig in the ground come spring and fall. Please email Nancy Flanagan at
