2022 Certifications and Upgrades

At Backyard Habitats, we not only provide incentives and knowledge to program participants working toward creating wildlife habitats, but we also enjoy recognizing and celebrating all those who met the thresholds of Silver, Gold, and Platinum certifications.

On our Facebook page, we often share posts of our participants getting certified. Those posts share details about each certified participant and their habitat. The list below is a compilation of all the people who got certified or upgraded to a higher certification level so far this year. We will update the list, infrequently, throughout the year.
