Supplements to the June/July 2014 issue

Kind News magazine, June/July 2014

You may be familiar with the phrase “Good fences make good neighbors” from Robert Frost’s poem, “Mending Wall.” But as we read in this issue of Kind News, fences may not be neighborly to wild animals who need to access different areas of their habitat.

If you have fencing around your home, walk the perimeter with your children to see if there are areas you can modify to allow wild animals to enter and exit. Consider raising the bottom fence line—as long as keeping a dog in the yard isn’t an issue. You can also dig out a crawl-under for turtles, rabbits and other small animals to use. The importance of being a good neighbor to wildlife is a great lesson to teach our children.
