Our very own Florida Yards and Neighborhoods/ Urban Conservation Unit is very honored and proud to announce that the National Association of Counties (NACo) awarded our program with a “2014 Achievement Award” for Innovative Approaches to Conserve Water and Create Sustainable Landscapes in the category of Environmental Protection and Energy.
Our goal is to educate homeowners, school children, landscape maintenance staff, property managers, builders, developers, irrigation contractors, government, and private entities about the importance of water conservation and sustainable landscape practices. The following three arms at work help foster an ethic of conservation in our Miami-Dade community.
- Florida Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN) Program
- Landscape Irrigation Evaluations Program
- Rain Barrel Workshops
With an amazing and hard working team, greater accomplishments are yet to come. We enjoy our work and appreciate the recognition.
