Community Wildlife Habitat
In 2020, the City started the certification process to become a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat. You can help us achieve this certification! If you practice wildlife or butterfly gardening, you may be able to certify your yard for free. Each yard that gets certified adds more points to the City’s certification application. Apply and learn more here.
