Haycock Township, PA Becomes a Certified Community Wildlife Habitat
A concerned group of citizens decided to form a Community Wildlife Habitat team and fulfill the requirements for the township’s certification. They gave presentations to organizations, set up tables at the Fire House’s Sunday breakfasts and created a blog where residents could get more information. In all, 64 homes, 2 schools, the historical society building, a park and 10 farms became NWF Certified Wildlife Habitat sites.
On a lovely day in October, the community came together to celebrate the certification at the Township Building. I was privileged to represent NWF and present the certificate to three of the township supervisors. I also recognized Dr. Julie Fagan and her team of volunteers.
Congratulations, Haycock Township! You are a great example of a rural community coming together to protect wildlife.
