NWF Certified Schools

35% of the population of Johns Creek is under the age of 19. This project preserves our natural environment for the next generation. Schools are key partners in our efforts to promote conservation.
All of the schools in Johns Creek are certified as NWF Schoolyard Wildlife Habitats.

The Johns Creek Community Wildlife Habitat Project is now offering local schools the opportunity to apply for grants for environmental education for teachers and students, as well as grants and onsite support to create and maintain wildlife areas for use as outdoor classrooms and class enrichment.
Creating wildlife habitats at schools is a great way to show commitment towards conservation, and incorporating the outdoors into the curriculum makes schools come alive for students. The goal is provide schools grants and resources to build and maintain outdoor classrooms, participate in continuing education opportunities, and promote environmental education through all parts of the curriculum. This new program is being funded through grants from the Cox Conserves Heroes Program and Whole Foods of Johns Creek. For more information or to apply for a grant or help with nature programs, please contact jcwildlife@gmail.com.
