If water sources are few and far between, here are some ways to provide supplemental water for multiple species:
- Provide ladders into and out of above-ground watering troughs.
- Ladders can be made out of wire-mesh (14-gauge wire mesh with ¾” holes) or carefully stacked rocks (inside and out) creating a ramp. This will allow small animals and birds access to the water and a way to get out if they fall in.
- Bird baths can be kept full, and shallow trays of water can also be kept around in select locations.
