Are you a Habitat Hero?

Habitat Heroes are people who practice a form of landscape stewardship, called ‘wildscaping’ - landscaping designed to attract and benefit birds, pollinators and other wildlife. Whether the landscape you tend is a residential yard, a few pots on a balcony, a public park, or schoolyard garden, Habitat Heroes believe in growing a healthy community. By combating the loss of open spaces and creating green corridors that link your wildscape to larger natural areas by providing habitat for wildlife we can feel good about doing something positive for ourselves, the environment and our wild friends.

Take part in the Audubon Rockies Habitat Hero program to provide resources for birds and other wildlife!

A panel discussion moderated by Willow Belden, host of Out There: A Podcast about the Outdoors, will follow the film. Panelists include Marc Dantzker, producer of The Sagebrush Sea; and Wyoming Sage-Grouse experts Brian Rutledge and Matt Holloran.
