Help NW Seattle become a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat

Join us in helping Groundswell NW put Ballard on the map as a Community Wildlife Habitat


Do you have:

If so, you’ve met all of the requirements to certify your apartment balcony, backyard, schoolyard or business as a welcoming haven for local wildlife, now what? Here are 2 easy ways to certify your wildlife habitat with the National Wildlife Federation and help Groundswell NW meet the goal to certify 300 homes, 5 schools and 7 open spaces as NW Seattle Community Habitat:

1. Download this Washington State form, fill it out, print and mail along with a check for $25 to:

National Wildlife Federation
P.O. Box 1583
Merrifield, VA 22116-1583

If you apply via this form, you will receive a yearly membership with NWF, ensure a portion of your donation goes to State of Washington programs, AND receive a free yard sign! This option is the best bang for your buck.

2. Register and certify online for $20. This option will give you all the same NWF benefits as option 1, but does not guarantee any funds will go to Washington State, AND you have to purchase a yard sign separately if you want one.
