    If you are interested in creating a habitat in your backyard that attracts wildlife and provides for their needs, there are four areas that you should consider. Josh and Rick Glassman will walk through Food, Cover, Shelter, and Water. That means something different for every creature. You can get more info about what to do and even how to get your backyard certified here: www.indianawildlife.org
