Many of these, like pond dipping and raising butterflies from caterpillars, can be done close to home and without expensive equipment. The book promotes conservation and demonstrates simple ways to contribute to the health of the natural world.First published in 2010, this edition has been extensively revised to present more local information relevant to the habitats where you live, and to include the latest equipment and conservation issues. A blend of inspirational guide, essential reference, and “how-to”, this book will make you wild about the natural world.
