Neighborhood Habitat Certification Program

Restoring Habitat and Protecting Water

The goal of the Neighborhood Habitat Certification Program is to support community members interested in converting unused lawns to natural, drought-tolerant California landscaping and habitat.

Every yard counts! By acting now, we can conserve & protect valuable water resources, and rebuild needed wildlife corridors within our community.

The Neighborhood Habitat Certification Program provides:

A Resource Packet with:
  • Useful resources for landscaping, irrigation, and wildlife stewardship
  • Access to local experts/workshops/demonstration gardens
  • Local business coupons
  • And more

(Help spread the word!)

The program includes easy-to-achieve criteria and a small $15 fee to support & invest in the program.
