We have some good ones here!

Let's sum up the possibilities thus far:

"Be a Wildlife Gardener"

"got wildlife?"

"Welcome Wildlife"

"Wildlife - Garden like their lives depend on it"

"Tending to Nature's Garden"

"Growing Nature"

"Preserving our future"

"Going Native"

"In Harmony with Nature"

"Connecting with Nature's Flora and Fauna"

"Habitat for Nature"

"Tending Nature's Garden"

"Gardening - it's in our Nature"

"We're all one with nature"

"The latest buzz"

"Naturally inclined"

"Nature dependent"

I edited some because of content or length, (sorry Sprucetree, I appreciated the poem, and dap - do it in the dirt???)

So now let's give a couple more days for entries and then go to a vote for a favorite. Sound OK to everyone?

That was meant for a bumper sticker, not a motto!

...and I said I didn't think it was appropriate anyway.

Hmmmm… how about…. “Come walk on the “wild” side with us…. where tightie whities and pantyhose get repurposed.” Just kidding. I think a motto should be short, sweet, and to the point but whadoiknow. Maybe Wildlife Gardeners “Where the 1st law of ecology has meaning” or “Protecting and Preserving our Natural Heritage”?

It is my personal ambition to work towards restoration of ecological communities through my own gardening practices. Ultimately, that is what brought me here to WG in the first place.

Based on the numerous posts by so many members, it is evident that we have some truly valuable people here, with such an amazing breadth of both interests and knowledge. To me, that only further illustrates that WG reaches beyond just wildlife and plants - - it includes soil, microbes, invertebrates, water, the land, and how they all interact.

With that in mind, I offer up a few suggestions for a motto. Feel free to wordsmith any of these:

Ecological restoration through gardening

Restoring ecosystems one garden at a time

Habitat conservation one garden at a time

Promoting wildlife conservation through ecological restoration in our gardens

Restoration ecology in the garden

I'm glad that I'm not alone in that goal. I only hope I achieve some semblence of it in my endeavors.

Aside from the vegetable garden and some apple trees, I hope to recreate a "pocket woodland", meadow, and a stream/pond/mini-wetland...all with plenty of edge habitat...and in various stages of succession. The landscaping near the house will consist of natives as well, but perhaps with a little more design involved.

I don't think it takes one long to realize what an amazing site this really is. Thank you for reminding us of what we've got. (Thanks again to those who founded this site and keep it running so smoothly...and to the members whose posts, knowledge, and enthusiasm make it what it is.)

You are right about the depth of topics and that we need to include the interaction of the biotic and abiotic factors that make up the complexity of what we are trying to restore and preserve.

By the way, I especially like this one:
