Wildlife Habitat Committee

The Wildlife Habitat Committee affords an opportunity to be proactive in protecting and preserving our Wildlife Habitat. The Committee seeks to inspire our Members to embrace the needs of our wildlife through environmental education and entertainment. Specific activities are offered for both adults and children. These include wildlife gardening workshops, trail development and maintenance, wildlife education seminars, and community social events. 
The Kid's Wildlife Habitat Club and Adult Wildlife Habitat Program are provided a full calendar year of fun events and workshops. 
The Committee is comprised of members who enjoy the outdoors, trail design and management, wildlife identification, water conservation, habitat gardening, building and maintaining habitat education infrastructure, crafts, carpentry, fishing and more.

Adults Lake Village Wildlife Habitat Club
Members got down and dirty in the making a Terrarium. For some it was the first time, others it was a visit back to the 1970's when the entire country was deep in earth tones.  Shown below are a few of the finished terrariums. This was our last workshop for 2022. We are busy now planning a full 2023 schedule. Stay tuned. 

Amphitheater Dedication April 9, 2022
After a tremendous work of love the Wildlife Habitat Amphitheater was Dedicated by a large Lake Village turn out. We are very grateful to all those who pitched in and made this a beautiful cornerstone for our Wildlife Habitat Program. This amphitheater will provide our adults and children a place to gather, learn and appreciate the wildlife that call Lake Village their home. 

Kids Wildlife Habitat Club Workshop:
Clay Molded Bird Feeder. Several Lake Village kids and parents enjoyed making a clay molded bird feeder. This was a very popular event and will be repeated. 

Kids Wildlife Habitat Club Workshop: 
This was so much fun for the kids. Debbie Gates taught them how to make a Butterfly Stain Glass using colored tissue paper. We really have some outstanding artists in our club. They were then treated to a special class by Lynn Cohen planting a marigold plant. The kids learned how important marigolds are to our Wildlife Habitat as pollinators. Ranger Ken brought along Gomer the Pelican (our official mascot) to welcome everyone to this event. The little ones loved being able pet Gomer on the nose.
