The Louisiana Certified Habitat program recognizes the efforts of Louisiana residents, schools and organizations to conserve our natural heritage. The goal of this program is to encourage property owners and managers to increase and protect the ecological value of their land to benefit wildlife and natural systems.
Because Louisiana Certified Habitats serve as models for the community that cultivate appreciation of native gardens, applicants must be in compliance with local ordinances regarding vegetative growth and maintenance of their landscapes.
This program is being underwritten by the Louisiana Native Plant Society and administered by LNPS and their conservation partners including the Native Plant Initiative of Greater New Orleans, the Acadiana Native Plant Project, the LSU Hilltop Arboretum and other important advocates around the state.
