Re: NWF habitat certification


This is a great accomplishment - congratulations on all the improvements and
all the hard work, on achieving end results (happy little critters), and on
following through to get the certification.  Well done, woman!  I'm curious
what number you are (which is really to say, how many backyard habitats
we're up to)?  It's neat to think of all those other backyard sanctuaries!

NWF has a couple other programs - the habitat steward program and another
one I can't recall at the moment.  They're buried out on the website (at
least they were last time I looked, a fair while ago).   Someday I am going
to manage to do the stewardship certification (it's a volunteer training
program not unlike the master gardener program but of course with a slightly
different goal).  My job can require too much travel with too little advance
notice, so I have difficulty committing to training over the course of even
a few weeks.  Like many other folks on this list - LOL (or maybe a heavy
sigh?!!!)   If I remember correctly, the last stewardship training around
here was something like 3 sessions a week (5-8pm maybe) for 3 weeks, plus 2
full Saturdays, attendance at all sessions required, then 50 hours volunteer
work during the next 12 months to be certified.  It's a pretty new program
and not very widespread yet.

Again, congrats!!
