The Backyard Habitat Garden at the Oregon Zoo shows you how to attract beneficial wildlife to your yard with plants and other features that provide food and shelter for birds, bees and butterflies.
A yard with habitat attracts natural pest eaters – much safer than chemical insecticides. And if planted correctly, the native plants these helpful critters love are easy to grow and need little water once they're established.
Open during regular zoo hours for no cost additional to zoo admission. The exhibit is a joint effort between Metro's Oregon Zoo and natural gardening program, and Oregon State University's Extension Service.
