South Carolina Wildlife Federation

SCWF supports wildlife habitat garden and restoration programs unique to the flora and fauna native to our state. Since 1973, the National Wildlife Federation’s Garden for Wildlife program has been educating and empowering people to turn their own small piece of the Earth - their yards and gardens - into thriving habitat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife. Together NWF and SCWF realize every habitat garden is a step toward replenishing resources for wildlife locally and along migratory corridors.

Recognize your commitment to wildlife and certify your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape, or roadside greenspace into a Certified Wildlife Habitat®. It is fun, easy and makes a big difference for neighborhood wildlife.

In addition, your application processing fee of $20 supports the National Wildlife Federation's programs to inspire others to make a difference and address declining habitat for bees, butterflies, birds, amphibians and other wildlife nationwide. A portion also supports the work in our state!

South Carolina is currently NUMBER ONE in the NATION in the number of certified Wildlife Habitats per capita! We're very proud of this distinction, and want to stay at the top of this list! PLEASE HELP us stay number one! Certify your Wildlife Habitat today!
