Join the growing number of people who are helping nature at home.

Wherever you are in the process of creating an environmentally-friendly yard, you can join the Conservation@Home program!

Start by completing our Conservation@Home interest form and we will connect with you to set up a free yard consultation (if you are within DuPage, Will, Kane, and Kendall Counties).

If you are outside of these counties, send us an email at [email protected] and we can connect you with one of our fellow Conservation@Home partners. During your yard visit, we will give you recommendations on the next steps to take toward getting your yard Conservation@Home certified (see our certification checklist).

Benefits of Joining Conservation@Home

Benefits of Joining Conservation

We think directly helping nature in your neighborhood is the best reward from joining Conservation@Home, but there are other benefits to joining the program:

  • Complimentary yard consultation by The Conservation Foundation staff. We’ll visit your yard to give you advice and ideas on how to reach certification.
  • Conservation@Home sign upon certification to display in your yard and let others know that you’re helping the environment, right at home.
  • Conservation@Home newsletters sent right to your inbox, full of sustainable gardening tips, interesting native plant info, and invites to Conservation@Home programming.
  • Access to native plants. Many native plant nurseries only sell to retailers and not direct to consumers—we can help get access to these plants that most people cannot.
  • Facebook Group of likeminded people who are also transforming their home landscape. Here you can share photos, stories, and native gardening advice. 
  • Support for The Conservation Foundation’s mission to preserve and steward nature locally, where you live and work. You get a 1-year membership to The Conservation Foundation when you join the Conservation@Home program.
