Wildlife habitat certification continues.


Milton is now officially registered with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) after completing a lengthy application process supported by City Council and staff.

Next meeting Aug. 15

The next NWF committee meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 7 p.m. in the Executive Conference Room of City Hall, 13000 Deerfield Parkway, suite 107G.

The meeting will concern the start of a NWF demonstration garden, updates on the project as a whole, and will be followed at 7:30 p.m. with a "Tree Care Workshop."

Get certified

There are currently 85 properties approved in Milton as wildlife habitats, but to achieve national certification the city needs a minimum of 65 more homes and points in other categories such as educational workshops and a demonstration garden.

The good news is most Milton properties qualify immediately for NWF certification, or with minimal work.

To learn more about this project, become a volunteer or to certify your property, please visit the city's Web site or e-mail
