Leave the leaves where you can! Rake them to the edges of your yard and onto your garden beds or leave them where they fall until spring. They are home to so many over-wintering pollinators. Most importantly, avoid the use of gas blowers which destroy their habitat, pollute the air, and create harmful levels of noise--which harm human ears but also disrupt wildlife. The organization Quiet Communities has helped many of the 200 communities that have restricted the use of gas leaf blowers.
