National Wildlife Federation’s
Habitat Stewards Program 2007


In March, The Patuxent Research Refuge and the National Wildlife Federation co-hosted the first ever Habitat Stewards Program at Patuxent. This three-day program was held at the National Wildlife Visitor Center where participants learned how to create wildlife habitat in their own backyards, schools, and community centers.

During this three day training, participants were taught by many local experts. Some of the topics included:

- Native Plants and Butterfly Gardens
- Wildlife Conflict Resolution
- Wildlife Rehabilitation
- Resource/Funding Raising
- Composting with Worms


Composting with Worms!

The National Wildlife Federation's mission is to "inspire Americans to protect wildlife for our children's future." The NWF's Habitat Stewards Program offers hands-on training and support for habitat restoration.
