How To Apply to the West Virginia Wild Yards Program:
Read the Wild Yards booklet available online at www.wvdnr.gov. Fill out this application completely. Provide a rough sketch or diagram of the property you would like to have considered as a West Virginia Wild Yard. Label property dimensions and directional North. Show existing habitat features and habitat features you plan to add. If you have any questions about the application, call the Wild Yards Coordinator, at (304) 637-0245 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If your application is approved, you will be added to a state-wide register of WV Wild Yards. You will also receive a certificate designating you as a Wild Yards participant and a sign to post in your backyard habitat area. We would greatly appreciate any photos of your backyard habitat! You could even send in shots of you, your family, or friends working in or enjoying your habitat area. These pictures may be used in presentations about the Wild Yards Program so that others may learn from your habitat management experiences. You will be given photo credit if ever we publish your photographs in Wild Yards materials or WVDNR presentations. This would be an enormous help to us to help get the word out about wonderful West Virginia Wild Yards!
We look forward to hearing from you!
