Steve and Anita Collins of Winchester, Ky., are the winners of the Salato Wildlife Education Center’s $10,000 Backyard Makeover raffle held Thursday, April 22.

Sponsored by the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the contest benefitted the Salato Wildlife Education Center in Frankfort, Ky. The couple frequently visits the center.

The makeover will involve landscaping of native plants, trees and wildflowers, and will also focus on non-native plants that provide habitat and are not invasive. Aside from attracting birds, butterflies and wildlife, the makeover project will provide an opportunity to educate the public about the importance of gardening with native plants—and to remind everyone of the needs that animals have for food, water, shelter and space.

Coverage of the makeover will appear on “Kentucky Afield” on KET T.V. Find more information here.
