Gifts for Gardeners
Another growing season has come and gone here. Now is the time to start thinking about Holiday gifts. What do you get the gardener that has everything?
Apply to have their yard listed as a Certified Wildlife Habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. It costs approximately $20. You get a certificate personalized with your name and habitat ID number and a free one-year subscription to National Wildlife magazine. You can purchase an attractive, 9"x12", outdoor plaque for an additional $30.

Any monarch lovers out there?
Then I'm betting your garden will easily qualify as a monarch waystation. You can certify your garden (or a friend's) as a Certified Monarch Waystation through Monarch Watch at the University of Kansas. This will place your waystation on a registry where you can download information and share pictures of your garden. You will receive a personalized certificate and Waystation ID number. It costs $16 to get certified. You can purchase an attractive, 9"x12", outdoor plaque for an additional $17. If you want both, the cost to certify a garden AND get a weatherproof sign shipped will cost approximately $40.
