Ready to make your backyard or community space more environmentally friendly? Audubon at Home is a program designed to foster better stewardship of nearby nature.

Audubon at Home provides a range of practical ways that people in the area can use to create more natural habitats around their homes. Through the program, northern Virginians are finding methods to “naturalize” and nurture our local environment.

Audubon at Home stresses:

  • Conservation and protection of water - e.g. by using rain barrels
  • Removal of invasive plants
  • Replacement of non-native plants with native species
  • Reduction or elimination of commercial fertilizers and pesticides
  • Greater preservation of public and private natural areas
