STORY MAP

Want to know what exciting gardens are near you? Explore this map to view stories and photos of our awarded Habitat Hero residential gardens, community gardens, city open spaces, schoolyards, public demonstration gardens and private sanctuaries which hopefully inspire you to create your very own Habitat Hero garden!  Since our program’s inception, we have recognized over 100 Habitat Hero winners for their “wildscaping” efforts that have provided critical habitat for birds, bees, butterflies and other wildlife and have converted more than 200 acres of habitat to native plants.  

Saving energy – your own and the planet’s, reducing maintenance, and still having a beautiful landscape: That’s wildscaping.  As it turns out, what’s good for birds, butterflies and other wildlife tends to be good for people, too.  Transforming our yards from highly managed lawns to wilder landscapes can keep our maintenance costs and time down, while creating opportunities for our families and friends to enjoy and learn about nature.
