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 https://www.nwf.org/certify

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/certify.

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