Landscaping For Wildlife Book By Marcus Schneck Offered By Game Commission

Landowners interested in developing "backyard habitats" beneficial to wildlife are encouraged to check out the "Landscaping for Wildlife in Pennsylvania," available from the Game Commission.
           Written by Marcus Schneck, a noted outdoor and nature writer from Hamburg, Berks County, the 160-page book comes complete with descriptions, drawings and photos of ideal habitat for a variety of species, from hummingbirds to bats, as well as construction plans for a number of wildlife nesting boxes.  
            The book also contains a chapter on nuisance wildlife and steps to address certain situations, as well as the importance of planting native species and a listing of recommended plants.
            "While spring garden plantings may be several weeks away, now is the time to begin drawing up plans," said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director.  "If you are interested in seeing and helping wildlife on your property, then this book is a must.  It can help guide any first-time backyard habitat planner, as well as an experienced hand, in helping to create an oasis for wildlife."
            To order the book, which costs $9.43 (plus state sales tax and shipping and handling), visit the Game Commission's website.  Orders also are being accepted at 1-888-888-3459.
