Re: NWF habitat certification

Very strange!  Should be right there!  I've just been out to the backyard
habitat website and they now have a whole online BYH system, including a
backyard gallery, and it'll evaluate habitat level of your property from
characteristics you enter; look slike you can even apply on-line!.  I just
registered on this new (to me) site.  They say if you're not sure what your
BYH certificate number is, leave it blank, but then it showed me as not
certified, so I tried to go back in and enter what I think it is... Turns
out you can enter "help" and they'll verify your number for you.  Not sure
what I'm getting myself in to here, but I guess they'll research it.  You
should have a number somewhere on the certificate, though.  Back a few years
when I got BYH certified, I left my welcome package including certificate on
the counter too long and "somebody" threw it out.  So I went ahead and got
the sign, although they had to research my number for me then, too.  I
thought I wrote it on the back of the sign but apparently I didn't.

hmmm the habitat steward page is no longer there.  I'll let you know if I
can find it.
