Want to have your yard or commercial space designated as a ‘Certified Wildlife Habitat’? Read below for a great list of organizations who will do just that! Many thanks from Sunflower ‘Projecteer’ Lisa Malecot for the information.

From Lisa:

I’m including links for the many programs that offer certifications and signs for your wildlife habitat.
• Here is the NWF link – and because they’re saying it’s pollinator “month” you can get 20% off until June 30.  CLICK HERE
• Here’s the Monarch Watch link to get certified as a monarch way station CLICK HERE
• Pollinator Partnership certification CLICK HERE
• North American Butterfly Association certification CLICK HERE

It’s nice to know when a national organization legitimizes or underscores your work. I work full time and have a baby, so gardening all my 10 beds is a challenge.  I just put on a head lamp and bug spray and garden at night, sometimes until 10 pm.  Yes I’m crazy, but it’s a labor of love, and I hope this encourages others to take advantage of the free sunflower seeds to add to their home or commercial habitat.  I anticipate an increase in pollinators in North Branford as a beautiful consequence of our efforts.  Lisa Malecot
