The Conservation Fund is a national, non-profit organization that seeks
sustainable conservation solutions for the 21st Century, emphasizing the
integration of economic and environmental goals. In partnership with local
developers, community groups and government agencies, The Fund is working to
demonstrate the environmental and economic benefits of "watershed-sensitive"
design through a series of model developments. In particular, The Fund is
working to demonstrate the benefits of conservation-oriented site-planning
and best management practices that reduce impervious cover and conserve open
space. The model projects are located in Huron, Ohio, Germantown, Wisconsin,
Niles, and Saginaw, Michigan. The Great Lakes Protection Fund and the Gund
Foundation provided major funding for this project.
