Community Wildlife Projects

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 new 
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, a new certification application 
was created. The Hummingbird Haven Certification 
centers on attracting hummingbirds to yards. 

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