NWF State Affiliate Program

State affiliates of Garden for Wildlife by National Wildlife Federation have a long track record working in their states to increase habitat for backyard wildlife species. Many affiliates offer workshops, native plant sales, and community events that support creating a Certified Wildlife Habitat®, pollinator pathways, monarch gardens and more.

Garden for Wildlife's efforts are not just about beautifying spaces; they're a critical component in our fight to prevent the extinction of wildlife species and confront climate change.
