Conservation@Home Testimonial

"The Green Folder  (GLC resource folder) provided vetted sources for native plants...(and) sources for other plants/services that we have used for consulting, layouts, and plant sources including threatened and endangered species in Wisconsin.  Our kids, family, and friends LOVE walking our gardens, viewing the endangered plants/insects, and collecting seeds for their own gardens." .

New Program Assisting Non-Residential Sites

Protecting our land and river resources is not just for the Forest Preserves and Parks in our communities.

We can create/restore the native landscapes, create habitat for a variety of birds and butterflies, absorb water, and reduce the time, energy and money spent on grass care on school, church and corporate campuses.  We can assist your organization with the conversion from "traditional" landscaping (often foreign plantings from around the world) to a more natural landscape that needs far less maintenance in the long run.

Conservation@HOA

New Program Assisting Homeowner Associations

Living in a community that is environmentally-friendly and visually appealing is important to us. Our Conservation@HOA Program assists HOAs in creating eco-friendly common spaces while implementing Conservation@Home practices such as reducing water runoff, creating habitats for pollinators, managing invasive species and more. 

At a site visit we discuss how to reduce the time and money spent on your common spaces while creating a natural environment for the homeowners.

Native Plant Sale

 Whether you're looking for smaller plants kits or an entire garden, these nine different kits will have what you need. Our annual Native Plant Sale will begin again in April, 2025.

Little Free Library

The Little Free Library movement has its origins in Hudson, Wisconsin, where in 2009 Todd Bol built a model of a one-room schoolhouse as a tribute to his mother, a former schoolteacher who loved reading.  He filled it with books and put on a post in his front yard, with a sign that said Free Books.

Built of recycled barn wood, the Geneva Lake Conservancy's Little Free Library is located south of the entrance walkway at the Mill House and is registered no. 19009. The Little Free Library includes books for all ages.  We welcome you to take a tour through our Mill House Gardens and take an environmental book from our Library!
