Your yard may be home to 15 migratory birds, 20 native plant species, five kinds of butterflies, and enough wildlife to make you think you are on a safari.
This isn't your yard, you say? Well it could be. It's easy, and it doesn't matter where you live or even how much space you have.
The Backyard Wildlife Habitat
program, conducted through a partnership between the Delaware Nature Society and the National Wildlife Federation, provides official certification for properties that meet four criteria necessary for wildlife habitat: food, water, cover, and places for wildlife to raise young. Property owners also implement resource conservation practices.
Through the program, you can receive FREE technical assistance from Delaware Nature Society Habitat Stewards to help evaluate your property and find ways to attract wildlife and help water quality.
