Community Wildlife Project

Gulf fritillary on coneflowerThe Community Wildlife Project, an initiative of the 
Nongame Conservation Section and the Garden Club 
of Georgia, seeks to:

  • Enhance native nongame animal and plant populations and their habitats in urban, suburban and rural communities throughout the state.
  • Foster wildlife conservation stewardship and education in Georgia communities.
  • Promote respect and appreciation of wildlife in combination with community beautification.
  • Improve the quality of life for Georgians living in these communities.

More than 750 communities have been awarded full certification, with more than 600 in various stages of completing certification standards. Since 2005, the Backyard Wildlife Certification survey has added about 2,500 certified backyards, 500 of which were certified with two or more adjoining neighbor’s backyards to attain a Neighborhood Backyard Certification.

In summer 2013, the Hummingbird Haven Certification was created to focus on providing food sources for hummingbirds in yards. 

Participants do not have to be a member of the Garden Club of Georgia.
