Dave and I are pretty happy to have been certified, a sense of accomplishment after working hard and long … a very significant benchmark for us in this great adventure. The rewards of transforming the yard have been delightful beyond our expectations. By having this easily accessible space to appreciate nature we feel that has taught us to see with better eyes the parks we visit thus, enhancing the experience. It’s a fantastic class room where there is always so much going on. The Backyard Habitat Certification Program has served as useful guidelines and tools in the exploration of the natural rhythms, an invaluable resource of information, plants and great friendships. 😉 We feel very fortunate to be part of the program.
