He spent his youth romping in suburban woods, fields and marshes, observing and learning about the surprising diversity of wildlife that inhabit those areas. As a high school student studying ecology, Mizejewski began to see firsthand the clear connection between native plant communities and wildlife populations, and his passion for wildlife-friendly gardening was born.In addition to hosting Animal Planet's BACKYARD HABITAT, Mizejewski manages the National Wildlife Federation's Backyard Wildlife Habitat program, which for more than 30 years has inspired people to make a home for wildlife right outside their back door. David is the author of the award-winning book Attracting Birds, Butterflies and Other Backyard Wildlife. Previously, Mizejewski worked as a naturalist at the Chattahoochee Nature Center in Georgia and Long Branch Nature Center in Virginia, and directed an urban forestry grant program for the National Tree Trust in Washington, D.C. Mizejewski has made numerous radio and television appearances, including NBC's Weekend Today Show, HGTV's Gardening by the Yard and Martha Stewart.
