Habitat Heroes are individuals, organizations, and businesses who create habitat for birds and other wildlife by planting gardens with native plants. Anyone, regardless of their gardening abilities, can become a Habitat Hero. Once you've planted your bird-friendly garden, follow these steps to get become a certified Habitat Hero. In doing so, you'll help inspire others to weave together a landscape in which birds thrive.
