Los Alamos has been certified as a Community Wildlife Habitat for the third year in a row! Our status was renewed by the National Wildlife Federation on June 26, 2019.
Community Wildlife Habitats are recognized for taking exceptional action to preserve, enhance, restore, and connect wildlife habitat while also communicating the importance of habitat stewardship to the public.
Community members that have certified their own yards as backyard wildlife habitats have been a major part of this project’s success. As of now, 189 yards in Los Alamos are certified as backyard wildlife habitats. This year, we hope to pass the 200 mark! Read about one family’s experience certifying their yard in the Fall 2018 edition of our newsletter Nature Notes.
If you’d like more information on backyard wildlife habitat certification, stop by the nature center on Saturdays from 2:30 to 4 PM to talk to our docent Selvi Viswanathan about converting your yard into a wildlife habitat. We also have a variety of resources available to pick up in the wildlife observation room. You can learn more about Los Alamos’s Community Wildlife Habitat here.
