The National Wildlife Federation announced this month that the community of Northwest Seattle, thanks to the sponsorship of Groundswell NW, is putting out the welcome mat for birds, butterflies and other wildlife, by recently registering its Community Wildlife Habitat™ project with NWF.
Northwest Seattle is sending a clear and powerful message to communities all over America that caring people, working together, can help wildlife, wild places and the health of the environment. The residents of Northwest Seattle are making a difference in their own community and beyond.
For more information on becoming involved in Northwest Seattle’s efforts to become a certified Community Wildlife Habitat, please contact Jan Satterthwaite.
