The featured site this week comes from Middlesex, Massachusetts. This home owner has created an excellent map that depicts many important actions taking place to support life on this property. The utilization of the Planning Tool told this mapper they are supporting birds, amphibians, turtles, snakes, lizards, dragonflies, and pollinators. Their eBird list supports this with over 17 sightings in the last 30 days. To see this map in more details: http://app.yardmap.org/map/L5426642

Here's a new map in Massachusetts that has an impressive bio-retention cell that helps to filter and clean rainwater before entering the neighborhood pond. Along with this water conservation feature, the property is found on a nicely wooded plot, rich in native habitat. Logs, rock piles, and a brush pile provide additional features that benefit wildlife. To see more features on this property explore the map: http://app.yardmap.org/map/L5042158

YardMaps can be so motivating! This is not only an excellent map, complete with all plant species identified and all characteristics filled in, it is also an amazing place for wildlife as most of the plants listed are natives, including one of my favorites: New York Ironweed.

The movement is growing. Each week more and more amazing maps are being created. We are more excited than ever to see all the amazing things people are doing in their yards and communities in the United States--and in some cases, all over the world! Here are a few favorites from this week. As our most recent Learn article articulates, "All great movements are built from the small actions of many." http://content.yardmap.org/learn/power-of-local/. Thank you for your small (and big) actions.

This week's map highlight comes from Summers, WV (http://app.yardmap.org/map/L5054804). It's a good example of the various natural land use types that may be present on farms. About 30% of the property is grassland that may be used by nesting birds. Management of the resources on these areas can either benefit or discourage wildlife. When possible, have a plan for management that incorporates seasonal timing for local animal life cycles…

Our homes and communities are "works in progress". There's always something new that we can add or modify to make our outdoor space more habitable for us and wildlife. Habitat Network can be used as a tool to document what you have and what you plan on doing. This property hosts several great features for wildlife including habitat diversity, rock piles, logs, brush piles, a bee nest, nest boxes and several native species of plants. http://app.yardmap.org/map/L3988633.

"By learning to connect with nature, our students learn to respect, protect, understand, and enjoy the natural world." -Nature Walk Montessori School. This week's map highlight (http://app.yardmap.org/map/L4994092) comes from an elementary school in Lake, Illinois and is an excellent example of how integrating nature with youth education can create curiosity and interest, deep understanding, and lasting impressions that transfer into maturity.

Farms are beacons for wildlife. Along with being rural, the open spaces, freshly turned soil, hedgerows, and often leftover grain or other accessible crops make this a resourceful oasis for local critters. This week's map highlight shows us how using IPM can reduce the need for chemical pesticides, making the landscape more hospitable to wildlife visits. Check out the wonderful pictures of bear, coyote, deer, turkeys, and other birds that have been uploaded to…
