Abstract (type = abstract)
Certifying Haycock Township, PA as a National Wildlife Federation Community Habitat
Abstract (type = summary)
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) inspires citizens to take initiatives and transform their own property and communities into wildlife habitats. The paper describes the process of registering and then eventually certifying Haycock Township in Bucks County, PA as a NWF Community Wildlife Habitat. The goals that were identified as a focus for this community included rectifying 1) the decline in bat and bee population, 2) the increase in invasive plant species by removing invasives and planting natives to support/sustain wildlife and 3) the decline in wildlife by limiting the overuse of herbicides & pesticides. Many households in the community joined in this effort to certify their own backyards while students from Rutgers University provided the academic support and factual details surrounding the identified goals. The culmination of these efforts will be celebrated on Oct 21, 2012 when the NWF comes to the community to certify them as the 63rd community in the United States to have achieved this certification.
