Waubonsee Sugar Grove Campus Certified as Wildlife Habitat

Waubonsee Community College’s efforts to preserve, protect and promote the natural habitat on their Sugar Grove Campus were highlighted during recent Earth Day events, and with recognition of the campus as a Certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation.

The National Wildlife Federation encourages and supports people to restore and maintain habitat and wildlife populations. Since 1973, their Certified Wildlife Habitat program has worked toward educating people about how to preserve public and private lands as thriving habitats for birds, butterflies and other wildlife.

The college has received recognition in the past for other efforts to preserve the lush landscape of their Sugar Grove campus, including being designated a Tree Campus U.S.A. for six consecutive years.

The college offered more than a week’s worth of events in celebration of Earth Day. The events were free and open to the community, and included faculty presentations, a bird walk, commemorative tree planting and more.
