Habitat at Home- a yard that is a part of something bigger
Create a beautiful water-saving landscape that helps birds, other wildlife, and you!
A Habitat at Home landscape can lower your water bill and reduce yard maintenance. Learn how to beautify your yard while providing food and habitat for the birds that enrich our community. Native plant species allow you to enjoy a cooler, low-maintenance yard in Tucson’s hot and dry weather.
Habitat at Home is better with membership! Get a reduced rate on your registration fee! Treat yourself to 10% off at our Nature Shop for completing each level (includes optics)! View the other benefits of membership here.
