NWF Certifies New Wildlife Habitat in DeGraff




The National Wildlife Federation® (NWF) recognized the Riverside Local Schools FFA program in DeGraff for successfully creating an official Certified Wildlife Habitat™ site.

NWF celebrates the efforts of the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Riverside High School FFA chapter to create a garden space that improves habitat for birds, butterflies, frogs and other wildlife by providing essential elements needed by all wildlife – natural food sources, clean water, cover and places to raise young.

“Providing a home for wildlife in our communities – whether it’s at home, or in schools businesses or parks – is the demonstration of a healthy and active eco-system. There is no more rewarding way to stay connected to nature right outside your door,” said David Mizejewski, naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation.

This new certified habitat joins NWF’s roll of more than 150,000 certified habitats nationwide. Wildlife habitats are important to year-round wildlife residents as well as species that migrate, such as some birds and butterflies. Each habitat is unique for both beauty and function.

The Riverside High School FFA chapter is an extension of the partnership between Ohio Hi-Point and Riverside High School to provide agricultural programs for students.
