High enrollment and a 2019 expansion into Washington and Clark counties is keeping the BHCP on its toes.

The Backyard Habitat Certification Program wrapped up a highly successful 2018! The year boasted a new record number of yards enrolled in the program, a high volume of native plants sold at its wildly popular plant sales, a generous amount of volunteer hours donated, and much more. We’re so thrilled to see this programs growth and the value it provides to people and wildlife. Stay tuned for more exciting Backyard Habitat news in 2019 as they begin expanding into Washington County, Oregon and Clark County, Washington.
