One Year Celebration!

Time to celebrate our first year as Certified Community Wildlife Habitat!  As of September, 2012, our grand total of certified wildlife habitats in Sammamish consisted of:

200 homes
9 schools
8 City Parks
5 Sammamish Plateau Water District sites
4 Farms
1 Church

Many thanks to you all for helping us reaching this community goal!!

Our new challenge for Sammamish is to have all public and private schools become certified wildlife habitats!

Our current certified schools include:

Discovery Elementary
Sammamish Childrens School
Arbor Schools
Mcauliffe Elementary
Inglewood Jr High
Red Gate Preschool
Creekside Elementary School
Elizabeth Blackwell Elementary

Families who are looking for a project to do with their kids can consider certifying their home or working with one of the schools that are not listed above to become certified. It is a fun and easy project.

Teachers, check out all the information and educator resources available to help you create and use a certified Schoolyard Wildlife Habitat as an outdoor classroom!
