A Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat
We are a National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat located in Waldport, Oregon. What does a "certified backyard habitat" mean? When you provide "food, water, shelter and places to raise their young" in your backyard (or school or place of business), the requirements to become "certified" are met. At this point, you can contact NWF and start the simple process of having your property certified.
Why is Habitat Important?
Creating an eco-friendly backyard helps promote our native habitat and preserves it for future generations. We are losing species on a daily basis because we don't provide proper habitat. Take a look at our BWH, the birds, the critters, watch the backyard videos, check out the beginning backyard bird tutorial and read more about the power of habitat.

This property is a HUMMINGBIRD HABITAT and HUB for the hummingbird migration. It has taken 10 years to establish a dependable hummingbird feeding ground where over 100 hummingbirds come to feed during the spring migration. It is critical habitat that the hummers depend on. Besides having Anna's Hummingbirds and Rufous Hummingbirds, we have also seen the Broad-tailed Hummingbird at our backyard wildlife habitat.
