We try to make a different beyond our own yard in a number of ways— even in the coffee we drink as we sit enjoying our yard!
One of the ways we take action to make a difference beyond our yard is to take part in citizen science projects.
We describe the citizen science projects we participate in as well as some of our data, but lots of other projects exist, too.
We monitor birds, butterflies, fireflies, and other creatures. Not only are we contributing to knowledge that will enhance conservation efforts, but we become much more observant.
Another way to act is to learn more about habitat. We list the resources—books and websites—we've found to be most helpful.

One of my first signs
We spread the word to passers-by with yard signs. You're welcome to download and display any of my signs.
