Garden for Wildlife

Support wildlife and clean water by creating a certified wildlife habitat and native garden!

Actions taken in your own yard to attract wildlife and protect our aquatic habitats can provide a wide range of benefits that reach far beyond our local waterways. What you do in your yard can affect not only the local wildlife, but also the soil and water quality of the surrounding and downstream areas.

Currently, the biggest threat to our nation’s water is contaminated runoff from yards, farms, roadways and construction sites, otherwise known as non-point source pollution. When you use sustainable gardening practices, you can help improve water and soil quality while also providing habitats for wildlife!
