Your application was received.
Thank you for submitting your application to be part of the Backyard Habitat Certification Program. One of our Habitat Technicians will contact you shortly to schedule an initial site visit in one to four months.
Please note that we can only accept enrollment from properties in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, or Clark County and whose property size is less than one acre. If your property does not meet these criteria, we recommend that you contact your local municipality, soil and water conservation district, watershed council, or other conservation agencies or organizations to find out about similar programs or those in the works.
We welcome you to take advantage of our website, which offers many free resources that provide locally-specific information on creating a great habitat. Those resources cover topics such as weed control, planting native plants, eliminating pesticides, stewarding wildlife, and managing rainwater. Ultimately, you can start making a difference in your yard even without a program like ours.
Our quarterly e-newsletter is another free resource to help you stay connected with our cause. You can subscribe to it at the bottom of this page.
