Certified Wildlife Habitat

The Town of Flower Mound is working to achieve certification as a National Wildlife Federation Community Wildlife Habitat® . The Town has begun certifying individual habitats on Town property and encourages residents and businesses to certify their own landscapes. Each habitat certified contributes to the larger puzzle of building a more resilient local ecosystem.

Garden For Wildlife

Anyone can create a welcoming haven for local wildlife and pollinators. Turning your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape, or roadside greenspace into a Certified Wildlife Habitat® is fun, easy, and can make a lasting difference for wildlife.  Learn more at nwf.org/garden

Create your own Certified Wildlife Habitat® 

Rapid and large-scale changes to our lands and waters mean wildlife are losing the habitats they once knew. Every habitat garden is a step toward replenishing resources for wildlife such as bees, butterflies, birds, and amphibians-both locally and along migratory corridors.

Certified Wildlife Habitat® applicants are asked to confirm they've provided the required number of elements for each of the following: food, water, cover, places to raise young, sustainable practices. Before applying review the requirements at nwf.org/garden

The Town of Flower Mound has earned a Certified Wildlife Habitat designation at the Outdoor Learning Area.
