Help Make Greater Longfellow a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat

The Environmental Action Team of the Longfellow Community Council is beginning a project to certify yards, schools and common areas in our community as Wildlife Habitat with the National Wildlife Federation.

In order for Greater Longfellow to be certified, there need to be at least 150 individual yards, 4 schools and 4 common areas certified as Backyard Wildlife Habitats. Certification means these areas provide the four basic aspects of wildlife habitat:

  • food,

  • water,

  • shelter, and

  • a place to raise young.

If we gain certification, we would become the first community in Minnesota to do so, gaining national recognition as a community that cares about wildlife, and promotes a balanced, sustainable way of life.
