'Green Nights" at the Morgantown Library Gives Eco-Friendly Tips

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

Wanting the grass a little greener for springtime is common, but a group of people met in Morgantown on Thursday night to make their yards a different kind of green.

'Green Nights' at the Morgantown Library provided an eco-friendly way to increase or improve wildlife in your backyard.

Sheldon Owen, a wildlife biologist from the WVU Extension Services, said there are three basic requirements for bringing more animals to your neck of the woods.

"If you can provide some food source for wild life, maybe a water source and also some shelter. Be it a bird house, or some trees to provide some type of thermal protection or cover," said Owen. "These are simple things that you may actually have in your backyard, or you may have to build some bird houses, or provide some water source, or just putting out a bird feeder."

The second part of the night included how to manage wildlife damage or unwanted wildlife.
