The National Wildlife Federation's

Sacred Grounds

Sacred Grounds™ is a National Wildlife Federation Garden for Wildlife™ program that recognizes congregations, houses of worship, and faith communities, who both create wildlife habitat and actively link faith practices and caring for the environment.

Congregation outside

We work with local partners in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions to assist houses of worship and their communities with project planning and technical expertise to increase native plant habitats and gardens. Workshops and convenings contribute to the development of networks of faith communities to build participation in houses of worship and beyond, ultimately improving the health of both wildlife and people.
