Maryland natural resources officials and the National Wildlife Federation are pushing for more residents to slow the loss of wildlife habitats. Following just four simple guidelines is enough to qualify. Residents must look to provide food, water, cover and a place for wildlife to raise their young, David Mizejewski, a naturalist with the National Wildlife Federation, said. The backyard program has been in existence nearly 40 years, with more than 150,000 certified around the country.
