A few weeks ago, Pam at Digging posted about how Austin, Texas is trying to become certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a Community Wildlife Habitat. I remembered having plans to one day do this myself (just for my yard, not the whole community!), and decided to get myself moving and do something about it.
It turns out, though, that I didn't really need to "get myself moving" - I just needed to fill out an online questionnaire and give them my Visa number.
Yesterday, my shiny new sign came in the mail. I'm not yet sure where I'm going to put it, but I will definitely make sure that it's visible to my neighbors. Maybe it will inspire a few more of them to put away the fertilizers and pesticides.
