Bring Conservation Home

Members are trained to serve as Habitat Advisors in this program sponsored by our partner St. Louis Audubon Society.

Habitat Advisors visit participating homeowners' properties, record the types of habitat and write reports listing what native Missouri perennials, trees and shrubs would do well in their yard. It's habitat building at a grassroots level, neighbor-helping-neighbor. This program is instrumental in encouraging our communities' residents to shift their landscaping standard from cosmetic to high-function for Missouri's wildlife. It's an excellent way to immerse oneself in Missouri's native plants and their role in sustaining the state's fauna. The Habitat Advisor teaches the homeowner about storm water manangement practices, too.
