BARRINGTON, IL – February 1, 2017 – Is your backyard a healthy habitat?
Citizens for Conservation’s Habitat Corridors project encourages and assists local property owners in becoming more earth friendly in landscaping choices and maintenance practices.
CFC volunteers visit home properties free of charge, identify existing native plants, and make recommendations for changes that are beneficial for wildlife, children and homeowners. Suggestions can range from adding specific native plants to rainwater solutions to invasive species identification.
Last year, Habitat Corridors volunteers conducted more than 50 visits; home visits for 2017 will begin in April. Interested homeowners should contact the group at [email protected] to arrange a site visit.
Properties which meet verified criteria receive a sign to display that recognizes the property’s earth-friendly practices to improve habitat and air and water quality.
