I am wondering if there would be enough interest in native habitat for its own forum? I am in the midst of a fairly large restoration project and wanted to start a thread to follow its progress, but couldn't really decide which forum would be best suited. I could put it in my geographical area, the Pacific Northwest forum. Or the Wildflower forum, although that is mostly geared toward flowers and not so much the whole habitat. I do know there are many gardeners who are consciously trying to incorporate native plants (trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals) into their landscaping, along with water sources, nesting areas, and brush piles. And many folks who have outlying native areas they are working to protect and improve. Many developments now include native growth protection areas as mitigation for denser housing. Just tossing it out there to see what the interest might be.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I'd certainly be interested in reading about your project, wherever it ends up going, Deb! I think it's a great idea for a forum -- not really something that's being addressed at present, as far as I can see. We have about 14 mostly wooded acres that I'd really like to work on (if I can ever get caught up on my other projects Rolling my eyes. ).

Sounds like you are talking about wildscaping, which not only deals with using native plants but also with providing food, water and shelter for wildlife. I would love a Wildscaping Forum myself and I'm sure there are a number of members like @frostweed, who wildscape. Hopefully a few more will express an interest.

Deb, maybe start a thread in the All Things Gardening forum and see what kind of interest there is -- if enough, Dave could always move it into a new forum! Smiling

We have 10 acres, and 9 are wild at this point. I'd love a wildscaping forum, or at least a place to discuss it.

Thanks, Dave. I'll take photos of my project today and start a discussion.
