Get Your Municipality Certified!
The goal of the Jersey-Friendly Yards Certification Program is to create healthy landscapes for a healthy Barnegat Bay watershed. You can help to ensure your community has clean water for drinking, swimming, and fishing and essential habitat for wildlife by completing actions in the Municipal Program and certifying your municipality as “Jersey-Friendly.”
After enrolling in the program, your municipality can get started on completing
the following actions required for certification:
- All Standard Actions in the 8 steps to Jersey-Friendly landscaping. Use the links below to view the Standard Actions for each step.
- Two Education and Outreach Actions, and
- Two Project Actions.
Standard Actions for Municipal Certification
After your municipality has completed all of the required Actions and submitted the appropriate documentation, your accomplishments will be presented to the Program’s Technical Advisory Committee for final review and certification approval. Once certified, your municipality will enter a five-year re‐certification period, during which you can complete additional actions to maintain your certification status.
