Create a Certified Wildlife Habitat

Mule Deer

It's winter, but a great time to dream about planning your spring gardening projects! Whether you have an apartment balcony or a 20-acre farm, you can create a garden that attracts beautiful wildlife and helps restore habitat in commercial and residential areas. By providing food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young you not only help wildlife, but you also qualify to become an official Certified Wildlife Habitat®.
