SCWF Backyard Habitat Challenge

Register your yard and we will enter your name into a drawing for a Wing & Things prize bundle

April – June

As Lexington and the rest of the Greater Columbia Area develops, we lose precious wildlife habitat, and we don’t get to enjoy certain sights of birds, pollinators, and “critters” around our homes anymore. With South Carolina Wildlife Federation’s “Gardening for Wildlife” program you can do the little things that go a long way for our native backyard wildlife and register your yard as an official “backyard wildlife habitat.”

We challenge all Wingard’s Customers to encourage native wildlife to your yards whether you plant a pollinator garden, plant native plants for birds, or build log piles for other backyard critters to make their homes in your yards. Register your yard as a backyard habitat with SCWF,  which will automatically enter you into a drawing for a Wings & Things prize bundle.
