Gardening for Wildlife
Here are some good articles about gardening for wildlife:

Leave the Leaves
We only rake leaves out of places where they are a nuisance, such as the porch.  I use leaves to mulch my flowerbeds.

Dead Trees Are Full of Life
I have long known that rotten logs are a vital habitat, so I have some of those in my yard.  When a tree broke off about 12-15' up, I researched what to do with it because I vaguely remembered snags were useful too.  I found out that many species use that vertical habitat, so I left it standing.

If nothing else, insert a few mushroom seed plugs into that snag and grow some shitake mushrooms for yourself.
