Habitat Application Help
The application is designed to gather general information to determine if your property will qualify as a nature habitat. If your property is initially rejected for inclusion in the registry, we will list your deficiencies and assist you in improving your property. Unlike other habitat registries, we have rigid standards and will only admit properties once they meet certain standards.
