National Wildlife Federation Honors Cincinnati as a Top 10 City for Wildlife

Hi folks,
We’re thrilled to share the news that the National Wildlife Federation honored our fair city, Cincinnati, as one of America’s Top 10 cities for wildlife!

Here’s a description of the program from the announcement: “The National Wildlife Federation’s Urban Wildlife Program ranked America’s 100 largest cities based upon several criteria for wildlife, including the amount of parkland within the city, participation in urban wildlife programs and citizen action measured by citizen participation in the National Wildlife Federation’s Certified Wildlife Habitat™ program.

You can read the full text of the announcement here: PDF .

What a great recognition for Cincinnati! We hope our WWC members are proud of this achievement. Every day, the Western Wildlife Corridor is working to protect and preserve natural habitat right here in Cincinnati, and member support is critical to our efforts.

Want to do more to help? A great way to help is to grow native plants in your own yard. For tips on that, contact Debbie L.  at dlutkenhoff@yahoo.com. She can provide advice on native plants for your own yard, and if you like, how to get your yard certified. Also, for information about how to create a sustainable garden that helps wildlife, review this link: www.nwf.org/garden. And as always, you can volunteer at one our of habitat restoration events, listed on the WWC calendar: http://westernwildlifecorridor.org/calendar/.

Go Cincinnati!
