Are you one of the 48 million Americans suffering from acute environmental sensitivities? Are you wanting advice on how to improve your home living environment to reduce the impacts of your sensitivities? Would you like to live in a cleaner environment before you commit your financial resources to improving your own? Habitat for Canaries may be able to help you!

Why a Canary? Canaries are early warning beacons of unhealthy environments. Whereas much of the population can tolerate some level of toxicity in their environment, Canaries alert us to early signs of toxic levels that long term are unhealthy for our bodies.

Why a Habitat? Canary warning signs are as individual as you are! Retrofitting or building a home living environment designed to minimize the impacts of unhealthy building products can be expensive and unfortunately, no one solution fits all. By building a Habitat of nests (units) for short term rental, you can experience different healthy building products and construction techniques to help you determine what best suits you and your particular needs. Those needing a short term restorative refuge are also welcome to the nests.

We invite you to browse our site. Building (Building the Nest) documents the vision of building the Habitat. When completed Living In (Living In the Nest) will permit you to reserve your short term rental accommodation. Of course, as a non-profit organization, we will depend much on those who Support (Supporting the Nest) this venture. Volunteering (Volunteering for The Nest) invites you to share your talents to help the vision of the Nest become reality. Finally, follow the Canaries Nest blog for current events at Habitat for Canaries.
