Grow Wild! in Carolinian Canada

Take the Next Step: Canada's Biggest Wildlife Garden

Take the In The Zone Challenge and help to grow Canada's Biggest Wildlife Garden! Thousands of volunteers and partner groups across diverse sectors, landscapes and communities are coming together to create a healthy habitat network of native plants across the Carolinian Zone.

Start with just one plant, grow a wildlife garden, or even plan a whole-yard makeover. Anywhere that you want to save, grow or care for native plants can be counted as part of Canada’s biggest wildlife garden – from a balcony pot to a yard to a field.

Take the Challenge - Register Your Garden Today!

Take the Grow Wild Challenge and pledge to do more for wildlife. Pledge to help nature by committing to a Habitat Action!  If you already Grow Wild, tell us your story!
