Urban Conservation:

Urban landscapes can be converted into a sanctuaries for wildlife and in the process help improve and protect our natural resources. Plantings of native trees, shrubs, wildflowers and grasses can attract birds and butterflies and other animals, providing food and cover. In addition to bringing nature to your doorstep, many Urban Conservation practices can help improve the quality of our lakes, streams, and wetlands by reducing stormwater runoff.


We are available to assist you with technical information, cost share, and implementation of your project. If you are interested in an urban related project, please contact:
