It all starts in your yard. CFC's mission -- Saving Living Space for Living Things -- has its roots in the gardens and lawns in the greater Barrington community. And that's why CFC's 2014 Community Education project will be one of its most important ones yet.

The four-part Habitat Corridors project will encourage local residents and property owners to become more earth-friendly in landscape choices and maintenance practices. From January through April, residents can learn how to make their property a sanctuary that's friendly to native plants, birds and insects.
