Re: Speaking of catalogs...what would you wish for?


Ten acres would give you opportunity for a small preserve.  National
Wildlife had a great article several decades ago for a small lot, an acre
lot and five acres.  It was amazing what you could support with each. 
Right now, we have fewer animals coming in due to our two dogs...even with
lots of cover plants...interestingly, many people say that cats will do
more harm but we actually had greater variety when we had our two cats than
with the two dogs.
