A SIMPLE HABITAT

 

Habitat Steward, Alex Shore designed this simple habitat (download pdf with complete instructions) as a tool for encouraging those with limited space to establish and certify a habitat that would qualify for NWF certification. 

Often times people may think they don’t have the space required to establish a habitat or that doing so is complicated.  This simple habitat can be planted either in a large container or installed in a small space in the landscape and would work for those residents living in a townhome or villa that only has a small patio or balcony space. 

This habitat can be created for  less than $100 (including the $20 certification fee).
