Here’s how Naperville and The Conservation Foundation are bringing nature to your neighborhood through Conservation In Our Community:
- Naperville passed a Proclamation declaring 2015 to be Conservation in Our Community Year
- Conservation@Home presentations were given at the Knoch Knolls Nature Center and to the Naperville Homeowners Confederation.
- Just over 50 rain barrels were purchased by Naperville residents in a Rain Barrel Sale.
- A Pollinator Station native garden was installed next to Naperville City Hall. The Naperville Garden Club volunteered to help plant and maintain the garden.
- The Naperville Public Works Department is distributing The Conservation Foundation’s brochures at City Hall, the train stations in Naperville and at the Public Works Department.
- A workshop for residents on rain gardens, native plants and trees is being planned for the fall.
