Nature is everything

It’s the best time in the world to share the beautiful life of Carol Buie-Jackson.  She’s a certified Nature Nerd who serves on the Board of the National Wildlife Federation and was the first female board chair of the North Carolina Wildlife Federation.

As we celebrate women this month let’s take a good look at Carol’s life as a lighthearted and humorous Corporate America dropout, yet the very successful owner of Wildology and Bird House on the Greenway in Charlotte, North Carolina.  She’s a wife and good friend to many, she’s a mom of a beautiful furry friend named Ella that customers refer to as the shop dog.

Carol is a Habitat Steward, a Master Naturalist, and a Master Composter. If you’re interested in becoming more connected with the calmer parts of life, reach out to Carol because she’s the co-founder of HAWK, Habitat and Wildlife Keepers, the Mathews chapter of the NC Wildlife Federation. Her two wild bird boutiques in North Carolina provides quality products for a thriving backyard wildlife habitat as well as garden art and nature-inspired gifts for nature nerds. Carol schooled me on quality birdseed versus the other seed on the market that birds dislike, and one of my best radio shows was with Carol as she taught listeners the importance of planting milkweed for the survival of the Monarch Butterflies.

Since we’re spending more time at home, let’s try to enjoy our families, backyards and the time to do extra chores we’ve put on the back burner. Stay safe, have fun!
