You’re Off The Hook

 

You’ve been putting off raking your yard, finding every excuse possible not to do it, or put it off for one extra day.  Canada’s leading conservation group is asking people not to rake their lawn. The Nature Conservancy of Canada says the leaves provide a space for many small creatures to survive the winter. They provide habitat for butterflies, moths and different kinds of insects that can overwinter under the leaves. It’s also good for frogs and toads. The insects that overwinter provide food for birds in the spring. Fruits and seeds that remain on flowers and shrubs are a crucial food source that sustains many songbirds, such as goldfinches, jays and chickadees
