Educating your community
Applying the principles of wildlife stewardship to your community property.
Plant native plants to feed the wildlife.
Remove invasive introduced plants.
Protect the creatures you are attracting: go pesticide-free.
Reduce your lawn (which is a barren environment). Use it only where it is actually needed.
Reduce storm water run-off.
For practical advice on creating habitat, ask for a free consultation with a volunteer Audubon-at-Home ambassador.
Matching grants may be available from the state via the Virginia Conservation Assistance Program (depending on your jurisdiction).
Audubon-at-Home certification is awarded by observing at least ten species from a select list of wildlife on your property and taking the Healthy Yard Pledge.
The National Wildlife Federation’s Sacred Grounds program also recognizes communities that educate themselves and others while connecting their faith to Creation Care.Type your paragraph here.
Consider certifying your community’s property as a wildlife sanctuary.
