What's this logo? This icon is now being used by Bed and Breakfast Canada (BBCanada) to show which bed & breakfast that has been certified wildlife-friendly by the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Backyard Habitat Certification program. 

By eliminating pesticides, using some native plants and providing the four essential needs of wildlife – food, shelter, space and water – the owners have demonstrated a commitment to providing sustainable habitat for wildlife.

Small Space Gardening

Even a limited outdoor space can make a difference for wildlife. A single flowering plant on a balcony or deck could provide nectar and pollen for butterflies seeking sustenance. A postage sized yard could have a small evergreen that shelters wildlife year round while the seed heads of a black-eyed Susan or coneflower provides food for hungry finches. For ideas on how to make the most of the space you have visit these links:

  • gardening in small spaces
  • balconies
  • containers
