Empower Community: A Goal for Your Site?

Some issues are bigger than one person or household. Mobilizing a neighborhood to work in concert to improve habitat (wildlife often use multiple yards), or to work to collectively improve the environmental health of communities is critical to scale-up impact.

Connect locally and take action to improve your neighborhood.

Goals Articles Are Special

This article is a part of our Planning for Habitat series. Habitat Network encourages you to set goals for each site you map so you can work towards outcomes that matter to you. Each goal has an introductory article, that links you to actions you might be able to take on your site to work towards meeting your goals.


Actions to Empower Community

These are the current actions that are tied to this goal. Whether or not you have “completed” an action is tied to the data collected via your site map. Each Habitat Map has its own goals and actions. To learn more about any action, or about how to change data on your map related to this action, click the link.
