The Gardens for Wildlife (G4W) program recognises the great potential for residential gardens to provide vital habitat supporting native birds and animals, including threatened species. At the same time our gardens can also be a source of environmental weeds and introduced species that are part and parcel of the decline of native species.

G4W helps residents learn about the connections between what they plant in their gardens, the plants invading bushland, and the reduction of viable habitat, demonstrating ways in which they can change their gardens to attract and support native wildlife, and engaging them in stewardship of Wodonga’s wildlife corridors.
