The School Garden Network (SGN) has been working in partnership with US Fish and Wildlife Service (US F&WS) since 2012 to develop and implement the Schoolyard Habitat Program (SHP) in Sonoma County.
We are thrilled to announce a recipient of our 2018 Schoolyard Habitat Grant, Village Charter School. We know they will create a wonderful space for children and wildlife to interact.
The Schoolyard Habitat Program helps teachers and students create wildlife habitat at their own schools. A schoolyard habitat project is a naturalized habitat area that is used for classroom field studies and observations. A well-designed project that is integrated into the curriculum will foster long-term ecological stewardship in children of all ages.
