Ewing Community Wildlife Habitat Project

Address

Ewing, NJ

County

Mercer

Description

The goal of Ewing’s Community Wildlife Habitat Project is to encourage the creation of landscape habitats using the National Wildlife Federation’s Community Wildlife Habitat Certification Program.

Project Goals

  • Encourage homeowners and businesses to create wildlife habitats and connections on their own properties.

  • Promote native plants that will support biodiversity, attract a variety of wildlife and require less water and care than most non-native plants.

  • Minimize/eliminate use of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers; as wildlife is sensitive, directly and indirectly, to chemical exposure through their food supply. This will also reduce toxic runoff into our local watersheds and the Delaware River.

  • Achieve community certification through the National Wildlife Federation’s Community Wildlife Habitat program
