The process of certifying as a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat will result in the creation of habitat gardens throughout the City while elevating citizens’ awareness of their multiple benefits for Denver’s people, wildlife and water. These efforts, spearheaded by the Department of Parks and Recreation, are in partnership with The National Wildlife Federation, Denver Water, Denver Public Schools, Denver Botanic Gardens, the Colorado Wildlife Federation, Denver Audubon, and the Denver Zoo. This coalition is collectively engaging and partnering with residents, businesses, schools and other stakeholders to beautify and enhance the places where Denverites spend most of their time.
