Audubon Society Of Western PA: Free Backyard Habitats, Pollinator Gardens Available For Residents In McKeesport, Glassport, Wilkinsburg, Allegheny County

Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania, in partnership with the Steel Rivers COG and Wilkinsburg Pollinator Garden Group, are offering free Certified Backyard Habitats with pollinator gardens for residents of McKeesport, Glassport, and Wilkinsburg in Allegheny County.  

Participating households will receive pollinator bundles of native plants (over $100 value), be enrolled in ASWP’s Certified Backyard Habitat (CBH) program, and receive a complimentary ASWP membership.

You must be a resident of McKeesport, Glassport, or Wilkinsburg to qualify. 

The 2021 season is limited – enroll now to secure your spot--

Financial and other support for the Community Conservation Through Backyard Habitat project has been provided by DEP's 2020 Environmental Education Program.
