WFD is an initiative of the NCWF, The Wildlife Resources Commission and the NC chapter of the America Society of Landscape Architects. The goal is to safeguard vital wildlife habitat by utilizing sustainable development practices, while optimizing the homeowner’s property value and quality of life. Developers and planners work together in the early stages of the planning process to minimize the effects of development on wildlife.
