One Yard at a Time

Audubon Society of Portland & Columbia Land Trust

We’ve teamed up to create a unique program that supports urban gardeners in their efforts to create natural backyard habitats. It’s through our collective efforts to revitalize urban landscapes that positive change is made. Together we make our cities a healthier place, for ourselves and for wildlife. Our community of Backyard Habitats is over 4,000 strong, and growing every day.


Our Program Area

We currently work with sites throughout the cities of Portland, Gresham, and Fairview within Multnomah County, and Lake Oswego, Milwaukie, West Linn, Oak Grove, and Jennings Lodge within Clackamas County. If you live outside this area, contact us to join our waiting list and we’ll notify you as the program expands.

Simply Enroll

We’ll send a technician over to assess your property, help you plan, and provide discounts for plants and materials.
