Learn how we are partnering with urban communities in 20 cities across the United States to identify how nature can address the most pressing issues cities face and benefit the neighborhoods that need it most.

By mid-century, 2 out of every 3 people will call cities home. This historic urban growth, coupled with a changing climate, calls for us to team up with communities to ensure a future where nature and people thrive in cities.
With help from nature, we are developing strategies to ensure a healthier quality of life for people in cities.
We are working hand-in-hand with municipal leaders and residents to make cities more sustainable, flourishing places to live.
As populations in cities expand, we must improve habitat for wildlife and ensure that all people have access to quality green space.
Get involved in our citizen-science movement to help transform yards and urban landscapes into habitats that support wildlife.
Find a volunteer opportunity in a city near you and make a difference for the nature we love and need.
Every acre we protect, every river mile restored, every species brought back from the brink, begins with you.
