Backyard Habitats

Your backyard is your sanctuary - and we can help you to make it a beneficial location for birds, insects, butterflies, and animals. When you landscape with native plants, you attract native species to your yard, patio or balcony.

ASWP’s Backyard Habitat Program will be launched in Spring 2018. The Backyard Habitat Program is designed to connect residents with straightforward but significant ways to support biodiversity and improve our local environment. Interested in creating a Backyard Habitat? Audubon is here to help you along the way. Once you enroll in the program, Audubon staff will visit your yard to help you determine the best ways to create your Backyard Habitat.

Interested in being one of the first in Southwestern Pennsylvania with a certified Backyard Habitat? Contact Sarah at or call (412) 963-6100 to learn more. Interested in learning more on your own? Check out our 2018 Backyard Habitat workshop series!

Our Backyard Habitat programs are an Audubon at Home initiative.

We're in the process of building this area of our website as a resource center for backyard habitats, so come back soon to see all that we have to offer.
