Southern California is rich in our proximity to a variety of sceneries. We knows where to find mountains, sea-coasts or deserts in our backyards. We are lucky to be so close to nature’s playground, especially when we encounter the people who call it home. That’s why Orange County Coastkeeper participated in the City Nature Challenge. If you didn’t get the chance, you can still follow the steps below for a merriment undertaking for the whole family.
Participation is easy 😛 TAGEND
Step 1: Go out into your backyard and record the wildlife you find- floras or animals
Find common souls like:
Opossums: Find them in your garden as they chew bullets, snails and bugs that are commonly garden secure. Squirrels: Find them in your plot, wide grassy spaces, or racing up and down trees. Skunks: They live in burrows, bush stilts, or hollow logs. You might find them under the deck, or your porch.
