Plant Roots, Create a Habitat, Transform the World...
One Yard at a Time

Portland Audubon  & 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 transform 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 9,000 strong, and growing every day.

Our Program Area

We currently work with sites smaller than one acre throughout much of urban and suburban Clackamas, Clark, Multnomah, and Washington counties. To see if you live inside our program area, and/or to sign up on our waitlist, visit our Enrollment-Application page.

Simply Enroll

A technician will do a walkthrough with you, help you plan, and provide resources and discounts for plants and materials.
