CWF Certifies Entire Community as Wildlife Friendly
Why not give your backyard some rich, natural fertilizer? With compost, you’ll drastically reduce the amount of household garbage you put out on the curb and it won’t cost you a cent. Composting is a win-win solution for tax payers and gardeners alike.
Creating a Wildlife-Friendly Shoreline
Cottages and camping are standard features of Canadian summers and tend to revolve around shoreline areas. A quiet canoe across a misty morning lake, a late afternoon trip trolling for fish, or simply lying quietly on a dock as the water’s tide rocks you to sleep are wonderful ways to spend part of a summer day. But what would those moments be without the hawk silently circling overhead or a dragonfly zipping past as it hunts for insects. Wildlife is an integral part of life in Canada and shorelines are a great place to experience it.
