Now widely used by garden clubs, this pledge originally appeared in the Boy Scout Handbook
of 1948:

Conservation Pledge
I give my pledge as an American to save and faithfully defend from waste the natural resource of
my country:
its air, soils, and minerals; its forests, waters, and wildlife.

January Horticulture Note by Carol Stocker:

“Squirrels: If they are hogging your birdfeeder, try using thistle seeds which attract finches, but are not favored by squirrels.”
