How To Get Certified


(View larger image)


You can create a NatureScape Broward landscape in two ways:

1. Certify through the National Wildlife Federation

2. Complete the FYN Official Yard Recognition (UF/IFAS Florida Yards & Neighborhoods program.)

Once you complete either program, your NatureScape will be added to this map.

National Wildlife Federation

National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has been helping people nurture wildlife for over 75 years. A sustainable garden that helps wildlife is created by providing the four basic components of habitat. Certify your balcony container garden, home, business or schoolyard directly online at
NWF Garden For Wildlife - Schools are free to certify!

Community Wildlife Habitat®
