Broward County stretches from the Everglades in the west to the Atlantic Ocean in the east. Their motto is "Between Sawgrass and Seagrass." NatureScape Broward is a program of the county's Environmental Planning and Community Resilience Division. They encourage residents to create "Florida-friendly landscapes that conserve water, protect water quality and create wildlife habitat." Although two thirds of the county remains as unpopulated Everglades, the county is committed to restoring the ecological integrity of the urban corridor as well. Broward County tied with Arlington County to be the first two counties in the nation certified as a Community Wildlife Habitat.
