A Community Gone Wild

On August 19, 2013, working with the National Wildlife Federation, the City of Milton achieved certification as a National Wildlife Habitat Community. Milton is one of only four certified communities in Georgia.

The overall objectives of the City's Wildlife Habitat Project are to increase awareness and to conserve wildlife habitats by both the City and its residents.

These objectives are consistent with preservation of our natural resources and are ongoing. The certification process requires the City to continue to promote these objectives by encouraging individual residents to certify their properties with the National Wildlife Federation.

These efforts and others will demonstrate that the City is committed to establishing a natual and wildlife friendly environment.
