In conjunction with our 20th anniversary, Conservation Design Forum is pleased to launch a new informational blog about environmental design and sustainable development as an enhancement to our website.
Since our founding in 1994, CDF has pioneered efforts to restore natural systems and processes in the everyday places where we live, work, play and learn - for the mutual well-being of people, our communities and the environment. more
Based in the Great Lakes region, we see water as the most influential element in the landscape – guiding our approach to site design and resource management. Inspired by its innate beauty and regard for its power, we integrate design and engineering to engage natural water cycles resulting in public and private spaces that are ecologically resilient, appealing, and dynamic. For more than 20 years, Conservation Design Forum has been at the forefront of the ecological design movement implementing technologies and principles that have helped shape and influence public perception and policy regarding land use, preservation, restoration, and the benefits of mobilizing natural systems.
