Backyard Habitat Certification Program awarded prestigious honor

In 2009, the Audubon Society of Portland and Columbia Land Trust launched a joint program to provide expert advice, incentives, and recognition to urban property owners who want to restore their yards for wildlife. Today, nearly 1,700 properties covering about 335 acres within Portland and Lake Oswego are enrolled in this program. These 1,700 mini-habitats are creating a network of corridors for forging and nesting. This month, the Backyard Habitat Certification Program’s accomplishments are being recognized by Portland Monthly magazine! We were selected for Portland Monthly’s annual Light a Fire Award.

This month, the Backyard Habitat Certification Program’s accomplishments are being recognized by Portland Monthly magazine! We were selected for Portland Monthly’s annual Light a Fire Award

Each year, hundreds of nonprofit organizations, programs, and individuals whose extraordinary acts of service embody the Portland spirit by making the city a better place to live, love, and grow are nominated for awards in 11 categories. In recognition of the tireless work of program volunteers, technicians, and participants, the BHCP was awarded the top honor in the Caring for the Planet category for our extraordinary work “to better balance human impacts on the natural environment.”
