Today, the City of Shavano Park announces it’s certification as a “Community Wildlife Habitat” through the National Wildlife Federation (NWF). The City is the 4th community in Texas to recieve this designation. The process of certifying as a NWF Community Wildlife Habitat began almost two years ago as a citizen-based initiative. Over the ensuing months, habitat gardens were added and enhanced at municipal facilities, an ongoing process of elevating citizens’ awareness of wildlife and water began, and best practices were adopted by citizens, businesses, HOAs and City administration. This designation means that the City, its participating residents, community associations and business partners have agreed to follow guidelines on how to live in harmony with our natural habitat.
