Climate Action NOW
501(c)3. Biodiversity is our purpose. Restoring our sterile suburban landscape with natural & biodiverse NATIVE habitat is our obsession.
The United States has destroyed 95% of the biodiversity in the lower 48 states, which has become a catalyst that resulted in the climate crisis. Additionally, biodiversity loss has now placed humans on the endangered species list. Our purpose is to help restore the lost biodiversity in our yards, local communities, cities and suburban forests. MORE
Get excited about restoring biodiversity & beautifying our suburban & city landscapes, yards, corporate campuses, suburban forests, highways and byways. All this biodiversity restoration & beautification will simultaneously drawdown a huge amount of carbon and save our civilization. Apply for a grant! Check it out!

“The Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) opened for signature in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, and entering into force in December 1993, the CBD is an international treaty for the conservation of biodiversity, the sustainable use of the components of biodiversity and the equitable sharing of the benefits derived from the use of genetic resources. With 196 Parties, the CBD has near universal participation among countries. “ —David Ainsworth, UN

Wilson, Naturalist We’re at a life-altering crossroads in the history of human civilization as scientists warn yet againContinue reading “Boosting Biodiversity In our Yards to Create Conservation Corridors”
Compost is a big deal in the calculus for increasing carbon sink in our soil. It provides one of the most effective methods for the US public to assist with cutting carbon as deeply and swiftly as possible. Peat is a compost. It looks very much like soil, but is simply partially decaded vegetation richContinue reading “Compost Boosts Carbon Sink”
- We are aligned with UN Kunming Biodiversity targets
- Nature-based drawdown of 10 billion tons of carbon each year through biodiversity restoration
