ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — First lady Katie O’Malley is helping kick off a campaign to make Annapolis friendlier for wildlife.

The campaign seeks to certify Maryland’s capital as a Community Wildlife Habitat. The program is run by the National Wildlife Federation and is designed to provide habitat for wildlife through sustainable gardening in backyards, parks, community gardens, school grounds and other areas.

The Government House garden, for example, now houses a bee hive for honey and a water fountain that attracts birds, as well trees, brush and shrubs that provide shelter for animals and insects. The garden also has three rain barrels to catch storm water and reduce water use.

O’Malley plans to appear Monday afternoon at the Boatyard Bar & Grill for the kickoff.

    If Annapolis becomes a wildlife sancutary I would gladly send Annapolis the rats that run up and down the alley ways in Baltimore.

    One thing I want to comment on is that weightloss system fast can be carried out by the perfect diet and exercise. Ones size not merely affects appearance, but also the complete quality of life. Self-esteem, depressive disorders, health risks, along with physical skills are influenced in fat gain. It is possible to make everything right but still gain. Should this happen, a problem may be the perpetrator. While an excessive amount of food but not enough exercising are usually guilty, common medical conditions and widespread prescriptions might greatly increase size. I am grateful for your post here.
