My SO just joined something at work, he said all the others were doing it so... The Fish and Game warden talked them into a program whereby we pay a $50 membership fee and they? in return send us bird seed to encourage wild birds to come to our property. He said there were different categories, where you could encourage different forms of wildlife...birds, deer, etc. and they help you by sending you the appropriate food for those critters. It's supposedly an effort to turn every backyard possible into wildlife habitats. Anyone heard of such a plan? I must say it's the first time I've ever seen the SO make a quick decision about anything and turn loose of $50 bucks to boot! He must be geting soft hearted in his old age! I have the dream of getting a large chunk of this place designated a Backyard Habitat, but my health is keeping me from it right now.
