The Thompson Road Fire Station (No. 42) was recently certified as a National Wildlife Foundation Habitat, meaning the city is one step closer to achieving its goal of being named a "Community Habitat."
With all four elements to support wildlife -- food, water, shelter and cover for birds -- it was easy to certify the property and demonstrate to the community how simple the process can be. Adding a bird bath was the only real addition to the front yard.
Thanks to the Milton Chapter of the Young Men's Service League for providing much needed man- and womanpower to prune, rake and plant the property to make it very appealing to the community.
"We still need about 60 certified homes for the project," said Francia Lindon, co-chair of the project committee. "It is simple to do with an online application and one-time fee of $20."
