Certify Your Yard

Show your commitment to wildlife and certify your wildlife refuge!

Why not show your neighbors, family and friends that your backyard habitat is not just another flower garden but, in fact, is important habitat for wildlife, butterflies and other pollinators.

Become a Certified Wildlife Habitat ® with the National Wildlife Federation or a Florida-Friendly Yard through University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. 

These two excellent programs provide a checklist for evaluating your effort and a yard sign upon meeting the standards.
