Being a Good Wildlife Neighbor

We all have a responsibility to learn how to be good neighbors to the birds, mammals, reptiles and other wildlife that share this landscape with us. Whether we are connecting habitat for birds and pollinators through the Backyard Habitat Certification Program, reducing the hazards for birds and cats by building a catio, or learning how to compassionately address wildlife conflicts, every action has an impact on the landscape and our wild neighbors.

Below are ways that we can be better wildlife neighbors – in local parks, across the state, and in our own backyards.
