Conservation Landscapes

Our landscapes and shorelines can either be resilient - part of the solution or the cause of wetlands loss, water pollution, flooding, sea level rise and habitat loss.

Conservation landscapes work with nature, incorporating environmental site design, low impact development, non-invasive native and beneficial plants, and integrated pest management to create diverse and resilient landscapes and shorelines that help protect clean air and water, support wildlife, and provide a healthier and more beautiful human environment. 

Conservation landscapes build connectivity of our natural or green infrastructure into the landscape and along our shorelines using natural and nature-based solutions like living shorelines, native plant buffers, rain gardens, green roofs, cisterns, permeable pavement, and eco-friendly lawns that reduce the use of fertilizers and increase the use of native plantings in landscape beds.
