Missoula Community Wildlife Habitat Initiative

On March 9, 2015, Missoula Mayor John Engen proclaimed Missoula Wildlife Week and announced a partnership with National Wildlife Federationto promote the creation and conservation of wildlife habitats throughout the Garden City.

The goal is to recognize Missoula as Montana's first certified Community Wildlife Habitat, promoting the use of native plants and landscaping to develop natural habitats that attract birds, bees, butterflies, bats, bugs, amphibians, and more! This is a great project for students, green teams, boy and girls scouts, clubs, outdoor recreationists, and other community groups to work on together.Reach out to us if you are interested in joining the Missoula Habitat Team, a group of volunteers in the city dedicated to protecting and restoring wildlife habitat throughout the area!
