nwf.org/certifiedwildlifehabitat Get your yard registered through the National Wildlife Federation, when you have begun to establish it as a native habitat supporting wildlife. Your yard literally gets “on their map!” About 85% of land east of the Mississippi is privately-owned, the more native plant spaces we make, the better for our planet!
