Certified Wildlife Habitat

We've had several inquiries about the Backyard Wildlife Habitat signs in our yard so I thought I'd post some information here.
The Backyard Habitat Program is sponsored by The National Wildlife Federation and administered through the eNature.com website.
Anyone can become certified in the program by meeting a few simple criteria for providing food, water and shelter for wildlife around their homes.
With just a birdhouse, feeder and birdbath even an apartment balcony can qualify as a backyard habitat and, once we provide these basic needs, wildlife soon arrive to accept our hospitality.
This is also a great way to help kids begin developing a sense of wonder for the beauty of nature all around them.
A viable human future depends upon a functioning & healthy ecosystem, and if today's children don't grow up appreciating their relationship with nature our hopes for the future are greatly diminished.
When your habitat becomes certified you will be able to share your wildlife experiences on your own free webpages at eNature.com.
