Congratulations are in order for Phyllis and Warren Strohmeyer of Rochelle Park, who recently became the first recipients of a Bergen County Audubon Society Wildlife Garden Certification.
The new program aims to raise awareness of the importance of ensuring that backyards, schoolyards, business grounds and other areas benefit wildlife. The BCAS invites homeowners, communities, schools, nature centers and others to have their gardens certified.
Commenting on the Strohmeyer’s superb efforts to create and maintain a garden that is inviting to birds, butterflies and other wildlife, BCAS President Don Torino said: “The backyard native plants provide what our birds, butterflies and pollinators need to survive. They have not only made a better place for wildlife but also a healthier place for the entire community.”
Want to learn more about the BCAS’ Certified Wildlife Garden Program? Come out to Wild Birds Unlimited on Route 17 south in Paramus this Saturday at 10 am for a seminar on how to create a Bergen Audubon Certified Wildlife Garden.
