2020 Goal: Increase the acreage of protected greenspace by 8,000 acres.

What is the Greenspace Action Team?

We are a diverse group of professional and volunteer nature enthusiasts working to preserve, enhance and promote the health and value of greenspace. Team members include representatives from non-profits, businesses, educational institutions, government agencies, park districts and land trusts. There are many ways you can get involved and help us redefine and prioritize greenspace in our region.

Enhance Your Landscape

  • Bring more birds to your home with native plants. Use the Audubon Society's Native Plants Database to learn the best plants in your area.

  • Increase pollinator habitat by taking the Cincinnati Zoo's Plant for Pollinators Challenge. You can provide beautiful, vital habitat by adding pollinator-friendly plants to your yard and landscape and enjoy colorful blooms all season.
