Would you believe you could get paid to not mow your lawn? There are many environmental programs in various states that encourage homeowners to transform part of their property into natural habitat for wildlife and birds. The general rule of thumb is if you own more than 10 acres of grassland, you might be eligible to receive financial assistance to transform it into grassland for birds. Various counties and states have targeted areas, incentives and offers, but it’s worth investigating your state’s Department of Environmental Conservation to see if you can benefit by going green.
