Thanks to the work of friends of wildlife like you, community members across Missoula—including more than 100 homeowners, nine schools, nine parks and public areas, and three businesses—have had their properties recognized as Certified Wildlife Habitats with the National Wildlife Federation! With these efforts and the support of community partners, including the City of Missoula, we are on our way to having Missoula recognized as Montana’s first certified Community Wildlife Habitat, which will benefit pollinators, songbirds and other wildlife in the Missoula Valley. This is a huge opportunity to celebrate our commitment and ensure the ongoing presence of wildlife in the Garden City—from elk wintering on city conservation lands to butterflies sheltering and finding food in balcony garden boxes. You can find out more about how we can become a Community Wildlife Habitat on Wednesday, February 8, from 5-8pm at KettleHouse Brewing Company’s Community UNite. A portion of each pint will benefit the initiative! RSVP here.
