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.
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
