We live surrounded by nature in the Northwest. Be it forests, rivers, mountains, or spectacular views of a gorge, the Northwest has a wild edge to it. With that wildness comes encounters with wildlife – sometimes even in our home gardens and yards.
Usually we welcome that that fleeting sight of wildlife. We even may create an inviting environment for birds and other small animals to pass through or stay. But, occasionally nature may intrude. To help you to both create an environment to welcome animals and to protect yourself and your property from unwelcome visits from animals, we have gathered some information and resources that should help.
