As Hamilton County continues to grow, the amount of quality habitat has been and continues to be substantially reduced. This adversely impacts air quality, water quality, soil stability, and wildlife species.  Our motto is “Think Habitat, Not Grass” because mowed turf grass provides very little environmental benefit and no wildlife habitat.  Our mission is to promote the conservation, enhancement, protection, and restoration of habitat in rapidly growing Hamilton County.


Whether you have a larger community nature park or a small space in your yard, all suburban habitat provides important benefits to wildlife and the environment.  In addition, regardless of the size of the habitat, you can still attract a variety of wildlife in your backyard habitats.  In fact, our backyard habitats are oftentimes the only habitat offered.  Visit our Attracting Wildlife, Native Plants, and Habitat pages for more information about backyard conservation.
