People gathered for Community Wildlife Habitat certification celebration on porch of a white house

Bring together your community by providing habitat for wildlife where people live, work, learn, play, and worship. The National Wildlife Federation’s Community Wildlife Habitat™ program provides community leaders with a focused framework for restoring wildlife habitat and engaging community members as they work to attain the National Wildlife Federation’s esteemed certification as a wildlife-friendly community. The Community Wildlife Habitat™ program partners with communities of all sizes and kinds, and is currently partnered with more than 200 communities nationwide.

Through the Community Wildlife Habitat™ program, communities are enhancing and restoring wildlife habitat in urban and suburban areas across the country, while also connecting to existing work around climate resiliency, community resiliency, urban forestry, water conservation, and beautification.


Where We Work
