Backyard habitat for wildlife program
Across our city native animals become dependent on our backyards to survive when their own 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 you to assist wildlife to survive.
As a member you receive:
- two free native plants
- an information pack
- a free copy of the Backyard Habitat Planting Guide and plant selector table
- discounts at participating nurseries
- a gate sign
- networking opportunities
- invitations to free workshops
- an Ecoadvocate subscription
- factsheets on frog ponds and nest boxes
- personal health benefits from gardening and being outdoors
