Backyard Habitat

A whole different world, right off the back porch.

Our connection with nature extends beyond trips into the wilderness or up the mountain. Our homes, businesses, and communities are all connected to the amazing natural landscapes around us. Rainwater that falls on our roofs and roadways travels to the ocean. Plants in our gardens feed pollinators and wildlife. The decisions we make on our own land affects our water, wildlife, and future.

Your local District can provide you with the tools you need to be good stewards of your land so that we can all enjoy nature now while protecting and preserving it for future generations. Scroll down for resources to get started, and then let your local District know what you’re interested in doing on your property. We’re here to help!

Your District can help you with:

  • Native plant sales
  • Naturescaping
  • Living by water
  • Living with wildlife
  • Weed management
