NWF certifies 12 new wildlife habitats in Roswell


December 26, 2012
ROSWELL, Ga. — Twelve Roswell properties have been recognized as official Certified Wildlife Habitat sites by the National Wildlife Federation (NWF).

The properties include Barrington Hall, Bulloch Hall, Smith Plantation, Hembree Park, Leita Thompson Park, Waller Park, Don White Park, Garrard Landing, East Roswell Park, Roswell Area Park, Big Creek Park and Old Mill Park.

In order to become a certified habitat, a property must provide the four basic elements all wildlife need: food, water, cover and places to raise young. In addition to providing for wildlife, certified habitats also conserve natural resources by reducing or eliminating the need for fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation water.

Roswell is working toward becoming a certified Community Wildlife Habitat. Residents are encouraged to certify their yards and help Roswell become the second city in Georgia to achieve this prestigious designation.

NWF began the Certified Wildlife Habitat program in 1973 and has since certified almost 150,000 habitats nationwide. The average habitat is between a third and a half-acre, but certified sites range in size from urban balconies to multiple acres.

Neighboring Johns Creek is already a certified habitat. The city of Milton is currently also vying for second in the state.
