Downtown Montessori has successfully created a Certified Wildlife Habitat through its Garden for Wildlife movement
The NWF, America’s largest wildlife conservation and education organization, is pleased that Downtown Montessori has successfully created a Certified Wildlife Habitat through its Garden for Wildlife movement.
NWF celebrates this effort to create a garden that supports birds, butterflies, bees, frogs and other local wildlife. Every Certified Wildlife Habitat garden provides natural sources of food, water, cover and places to raise young and is maintained in a sustainable way that incorporates native plants, conserves water and doesn’t rely on pesticides.
As a Certified Wildlife Habitat garden, we are now also part of the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge, a national effort to create a million gardens that provide habitat for declining pollinator insects such as butterflies and bees.
