By supporting wildlife in gardens and landscapes, the movement is an effort to double the abundance of butterflies, birds and other  essential pollinators.

Our gardens and landscapes play an important role in supporting Earth's pollinators.  The types of trees, shrubs and plants you grow can create an ecosystem that helps sustain them. Providing the things they need to survive; water, food, shelter, and a place to raise their young. In this inaugural plantchat podcast, David talks about the Garden for Wildlife program and how each of us can get involved. Key discussion points include;

  • How and why did the National Wildlife Federation start the effort all those years ago?
  • What do plants and gardening have to do with wildlife? Most people don't want wildlife in their garden, right?
  • What do people need to do to create a wildlife habitat garden?
  • Why are native plants so important for wildlife?
  • What's a Certified Wildlife Habitat?  Why should people certify their yards and gardens?
  • Why are pollinators declining and how can gardens help?
