Conservation@Home has expanded to include Cook County's Community landscape sites.
Conservation@Home Cook County recognizes and certifies community properties that demonstrate environmentally sound landscape practices. This program is brought to you by the partnership of Forest Preserves of Cook County and University of Illinois Extension.
Through the Conservation@Home community certification program, Chicago and suburban shared spaces of Cook County have the opportunity to build their community in environmental stewards while shaping landscapes in a conservation minded way. Our staff and volunteers can provide mentorship for your organization to educate you about native vegetation, water and wildlife conservation and environmental curriculum. Guidance is provided through our Criteria for Community.
The biggest reward for integrating sustainable practices at your community is being aware that you are contributing to clean water, rich soil and resilient ecosystems that support people and wildlife.
Conservation@Home is a program of The Conservation Foundation. University of Illinois Extension is pleased to be a partner.
