Agritourism travelers enjoy wildlife. Dr. Bobby Fletcher with the LSU AgCenter shares some ideas on how to attract wildlife to your operation.
Food. Provide food in the form of plants that bear seed, fruit, foliage or flowers that you’re willing to have eaten by birds, larval butterflies (caterpillars) or adult butterflies. Berries, fleshy fruits, nuts and acorns are all treats for wildlife. Wildlife find meadow grasses especially attractive, and the grasses add a graceful feature to any landscape. For more click here.
