Wild in the City
Cities are ecological places, just as much as they are places for economic and social interaction. The quality of the nature of a place and its ability to provide necessary environmental services, habitats for wildlife and wonderful places for outdoor recreation is a matter of conscientious decision-making, cultivation and maintenance.
We encourage everyone to take part in nurturing San Miguel as a habitat for both wildlife and people.
People need nature…
Nature in the City is a program that encourages everyone to take part in nurturing habitats for both wildlife and people in the places where we live, work and play.
- Let’s make cleaning up our waterways a priority so they can return to healthy habitats for people and wildlife.
- Let’s improve our parks, preserve open spaces, and provide natural areas where children can make positive connections with nature that will instill within them a desire to care for it.
- Let’s nurture wildlife in our city by planting trees and flowering plants that attract birds and pollinators; using alternatives to pesticides; hanging bird feeders; and acting in other mindful ways.
And nature needs People
Let’s help San Miguel become a place where nature and people flourish
side by side.
In return nature will reward us with beautiful spaces for recreation and relaxation; a greater diversity and abundancy of birds, butterflies and other wildlife; cleaner water and air; reduced carbon emissions, and an enhanced sense of place.
