Since 1973, the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife program has been educating and empowering people turn their own small piece of the Earth - their yards and gardens - into thriving habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Likewise, about one third of the National Wildlife Federation’s affiliate state and territorial partners have supported wildlife habitat garden and restoration programs unique to the flora and fauna native to their state.
Eleven 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!
