Do you or your neighbors work diligently to ensure you’re cultivating best practices that leave the neighborhood and the watershed a better place? Is your yard (or a neighbor’s) a habitat for both native flora and fauna? If so, highlight the yard so that we can all learn from, connect, and celebrate the phenomenal things we’re doing in our neighborhood!
REMEMBER: native plants are easier to grow than non-native plants. Native plants don’t need as much water, fertilizer, pruning or special care.
Winners will receive a sign to display in their yard until the next Civic Association meeting; be highlighted in the next quarterly newsletter and on our website; receive a gift card to a local nursery; and have bragging rights around the work that they’re doing to ensure Richmond is a vibrant and beautiful community for many years to come!
Thanks for ensuring that we’re leaving Woodland Heights and the James River watershed a better place! Be sure to check out our signage around the neighborhood and introduce, learn from, and celebrate all the amazing things that are happening in and around Woodland Heights!
Schedule to Submit Nominations: You can submit nominations for yourself and others on a rolling basis. Local conservation experts will weigh in on submissions and winners will be announced at the following Civic Association meeting.
