How You Can Help Wildlife?
This is a great time to think about how you can improve your backyard into welcoming haven for local wildlife. Turning your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape into a Certified Wildlife Habitat® is fun, easy, and can make a lasting difference for wildlife.
We have certified Nature At The Confluence Campus using National Wildlife Federations “Garden For Wildlife” program. We are particularly focusing our efforts along a section of the property near Kelly Creek where we have added many shrubs that will provide food and cover in future years.
