Wildscapes: Best of Texas Backyard Habitat Certification


What are the essentials?

The Best of Texas Backyard Habitats Program is a joint effort of the National Wildlife Federation and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department that allows Texans to certify under both programs with a single form. Best of Texas Backyard Habitat took the best of the two individual programs and pushed the bar a little higher, challenging Texas wildlife gardeners to create a habitat that seeks to maximize wildlife benefits and highlight sound conservation stewardship within the bounds of urban restrictions. Does your garden meet the challenge? If so, Best of Texas Backyard Habitats may be just the program for you!
