Wildlife Diversity Program: Science for Stewardship

Wildscapes: Best of Texas Backyard Habitat Certification

What are the essentials?

The Best of Texas Backyard Habitats Program was a joint effort of the National Wildlife Federation and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department that allowed Texans to certify under both programs with a single form. Best of Texas Backyard Habitat took the best of the two individual programs and pushed the bar a little higher, challenging Texas wildlife gardeners to create a habitat that seeks to maximize wildlife benefits and highlight sound conservation stewardship within the bounds of urban restrictions.

We are not accepting new applications for Wildscape Certification at this time, but we encourage you to certify your landscape through the National Wildlife Federation’s Certified Wildlife Habitat program.
