My recent post about this National Wildlife Foundation program elicited some questions - does my community have this? - so here's a link to the communities that have either completed the process and
been certified, or have registered, meaning they're working toward
certification. Three more communities have registered since the list
was updated: Burlington, VT; Clarksville/Buffalo Junction, VA, a rural community on the NC border; and
Lawrence Township in the Indianapolis area.
Notice how these communities concentrate in Virginia and the Seattle area? Further confirmation that Seattle's an environmentally progressive community. Virginia has the good luck to have the Foundation headquartered in Reston, and nearby Arlington County recently became the largest habitat community in the U.S.
So if your community isn't on these lists, maybe you can help make that happen.
And Readers, thanks for generously offering your photos for the cause. They'll be accompanied by links to your sites and blogs.
