Since 1973, the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife® program has been educating and empowering people to turn their own small piece of the Earth—their yards and gardens—into thriving habitats for birds, butterflies, and other wildlife. Likewise, about one third of the National Wildlife Federation’s state and territorial affiliate partners have supported wildlife habitat garden and restoration programs unique to the flora and fauna native to their state.
Twenty-four state affiliates of the National Wildlife Federation have had a long track record working in their states to increase habitat for backyard wildlife species. In addition, the entire nationwide state and territorial affiliate network adopted a resolution to protect pollinator populations.
The state affiliates listed below have a new formal partnership with the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife® program. Together we are recognizing the efforts of those in each of these select states who commit to creating wildlife habitat with a co-certification of Certified Wildlife Habitat® designation. Stay tuned—more state affiliates will soon be joining the partnership!
