Backyard Habitat for Wildlife

Across the City, native animals become dependent on our backyards to survive when their habitat is damaged or lost. Whether you live in a house, unit, or apartment, by allowing your backyard to become a habitat garden, you are helping the local wildlife. Creating a wildlife-friendly habitat is easy and could be as little as building a birdbath, providing hollow shelter, or planting native shrubs


The Backyard Habitat for Wildlife Program is free to join and provides an opportunity for residents to assist wildlife to survive in their local area.
