Gardening For Wildlife
The Utah Wildlife Federation invites you to bring your support for wildlife to your backyard and communities in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife programs!
Since 1973, the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife programs have been educating and empowering people to turn their own yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape or roadside greenspace into a Certified Wildlife Habitat®. It's fun, easy and makes a big difference for neighborhood wildlife.
In addition, your application processing fee of $20 supports the National Wildlife Federation's programs to inspire others to make a difference and address declining habitat for bees, butterflies, birds, amphibians and other wildlife nationwide. A portion also supports this work in our state!
Check out this inspiring story about Nibly - the first place in Utah to become a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat. When you certify your yard you’ll get a Certified Wildlife Habitat sign for your yard.
Together, NWF and UWF realize every habitat garden is a step toward replenishing resources for wildlife locally and along migratory corridors.
Recognize your commitment to wildlife and certify your patch of Earth today!
