Exact names(s) as they should appear on printed certificate (50 characters maximum):

Garden/Habitat Detail - Nectar Plants
Butterflies require nectar for energy and reproduction. A minimum of three different butterfly nectar plants that are native to your location are required for garden/habitat certification. Please see NABA’s Butterfly Gardening Guides for further information on native butterfly nectar plants for your area.




Garden/Habitat Detail - Catepillar Host Plants
Caterpillars require specific host plants for growth. A minimum of three different caterpillar host plants that are native to your location are required for garden/habitat certification. Please see NABA’s Butterfly Gardening Guides for further information on native caterpillar host plants for your area.




Garden/Habitat Detail - Management
Management of butterfly gardens/habitats is similar to practices used for general gardening. Good management of your garden/habitat will improve the quality of the soil, air, and habitat for butterflies as well as other wildlife, including humans. Mulching around garden plants to conserve moisture and decrease erosion, eliminating pesticides/herbicides, water conservation techniques such as collecting rainwater from downspouts and using soaker hoses, choosing plant species native to your location, and the eliminating invasive plant species, are all garden/habitat management techniques that improve the likelihood that your garden will thrive and provide an inviting butterfly habitat. Reporting of your garden/habitat management methods is optional for certification.
