Bringing nature home is easy with Conservation@Home, TLC’s environmentally responsible land stewardship support program for homeowners. The program was started by The Conservation Foundation to give residents in DuPage, Kane, Will, and Kendall counties a meaningful way to contribute to the environmental health of their communities. In 2015, The Land Conservancy introduced this program to McHenry County. Getting started is simple by implementing changes like:  

  • Planting Native Species – Native trees, shrubs, and plants support wildlife, help rain soak into the soil, and provide beauty.
  • Removing Invasive Species – Invasive trees, shrubs, and plants may have a negative impact on local habitats and wildlife.

Qualified homeowners have the opportunity to receive a yard sign signifying their participation in the program and environmentally-friendly landscape.
