If you love gardening and connecting with people in your community, National Wildlife Federation can help you certify your community as a Community Wildlife Habitat®.
A Community Wildlife Habitat is a community that provides habitat for wildlife throughout the community—in individual backyards, on school grounds and in public areas such as parks, community gardens, places of worship and businesses.
A Community Habitat project creates a place where people, flora and fauna can all flourish. It is a place where the residents make it a priority to provide habitat for wildlife by providing the four basic elements that all wildlife need: food, water, cover and places to raise young.
The community also educates its residents about sustainable gardening practices such as reducing or eliminating chemical fertilizers and pesticides, conserving water, planting native plants, removing invasive plants and composting.
Community Wildlife Habitats are organized by a team of people, who not only help create habitat, but also hold workshops about gardening for wildlife and organize community events such as stream or trail cleanups.
