Backyard Habitat Program


In July of 2017, the City of Coral Springs successfully became one of the few cities in the nation to be recognized as a Community Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). One of the most important aspects of this certification process was to have 300 single family homes certified as Backyard Habitats by the NWF. 


The City of Coral Springs in concert with the Florida Wildlife Federation and the National Wildlife Federation, is offering all Florida residents an opportunity to continue to take part in the Backyard Wildlife Habitat Program. The goal is to promote and expand gardening for wildlife in Florida.

Wildlife needs four basic elements: food, water, cover and a place to raise their young. These things can be accomplished on a piece of ground as small as three by eight feet. The method for planning for and providing these basic elements can be simple and inexpensive, or as elaborate as the property owner chooses.
