Welcome to our room of galleries! Our emphasis is on documenting bird, insect and animal activity in our Shady Oaks Sanctuary, where increasing biodiversity through habitat reconciliation has been ongoing since 1996. Peruse, enjoy and we hope you might even be inspired!

As of March 19, 2020, we dedicate our blog to our grandchildren, Dean Anders, Leif Ansel and Veronica Wren.

May their futures be filled with the peace of wild things.

Margy,
I just love it when your blog post comes to my email. I wait before opening it until I have enough time to sit and relish each picture, video and description. Thank you so much for creating your haven and for sharing your work and rewards through this blog. It transports me for a while from my everyday worries. It inspires me to tweak my own garden habitat sometimes little by little and sometimes in great bounds.

I watched your presentation tonight on the MBS program with Dana Ripper. You are so awesome!!! I cant tell you how much I enjoyed it. I learned so much. Thank you and Bravo on an amazing presentation. You should take that presentation on the road to the schools! More people need to be exposed to these idea’s. I have tried to make my back yard an aviary for the last 20 years and have had many success and very proud of the habitat I have created. I have done this with little help. Is there a way to get more help? After your presentation I can see I have lots to learn. I would love to have someone come to my house and give me a rough plan or idea’s on what to pursue. After hearing your talk tonight I realize I need more information. What would you recommend as a next step. Also, do you ever give tours of your back yard? I would love to spend time in your garden. Again, thanks for all your passion, knowledge and excellent explanations of this important topic. I feel so strongly that us all can help with climate change, promote biodiversity and develop sustainable lifestyle with our planet. No matter where you live! Let me know if you ever give tours. I would love to see your work first hand. I am a member of St Louis Audubon and Webster Groves Nature Societ.
