Audubon at Home: Prince William

audobon.jpg
Virginia Cooperative Extension Prince William Environment and Natural Resources program has an unique relationship with Audubon at Home.  Extension Master Gardener Volunteers currently make site visits for our BEST Lawns program, and can also certify properties for Audubon while we are on site.  BEST Lawns program goal is to improve water quality and reduce pesticide and fertilizer use.  Audubon at Home is a program to support people’s interest and efforts to become better stewards of the environment in their yards, neighborhoods, parks and other spaces. Properties can be certified as Audubon at Home Wildlife Sanctuaries by identifying 10 or more of these species listed below and home owners can embrace a Healthy Yard Pledge
