The Common Thread Between These Cities

All the cities on this list have one thing in common and that is their citizens drive to create a community where people and wildlife can thrive. However with some of our most familiar species in a decline or at risk of disappearing from communities, NWF is working to reverse that trend through programs that bring awareness to protecting our communities and wildlife. Austin is certified as a Community Wildlife Habitat, a project that benefits the entire community through education, outreach, and promoting the use of native plants and landscaping to develop natural habitats.
