Certified Wildlife Habitat

Recognize your commitment to wildlife and certify your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape, or roadside greenspace into a Certified Wildlife Habitat®. It is fun, easy, and makes a big difference for neighborhood wildlife.

By creating a natural garden with native plants, you are providing essential elements of wildlife habitat: food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young. Add a water source – such as a birdbath – and follow sustainable gardening practices, and your garden will not only be wildlife-friendly, but it will qualify as a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat®.

Together the National Wildlife Federation and the Conservation Federation of Missouri realize every habitat garden is a step toward replenishing resources for wildlife locally and along migratory corridors.

In addition, a portion of your application processing fee supports the Conservation Federation of Missouri and 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. The fee is waived for schools Pre-K to Grade 12.
