See BCH in action on the 2017 Sustainable Backyard Tour

The 7th Annual Sustainable Backyard Tour is a grassroots, all-volunteer event showcasing yards and gardens throughout St. Louis that demonstrate features of sustainability and organic gardening. The tour will take place on June 11, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m, rain or shine. 

More than 40 hosts will welcome tour-goers this year to see the many ways to live more sustainably in our own backyards.  

Bring Conservation Home participation is noted for the following location numbers:

  #2 – 508 Lalor Dr, Silver certified 

#22 – 4871 Goethe

#23 – 7039 Horner Ave, Platinum certified

#36 – 771 Pardella, Gold certified

#37 – 627 Majesty

#45 – 2833 Manderly, Platinum certified

Note: If you are hosting and we’ve missed you on the list, please let us know and we’ll add your location.

Although not exclusive to native plants, the Tour’s mission fits well with our Bring Conservation Home mission – to educate and encourage others in our community to build urban wildlife habitat.

The Tour is FREE but registration is encouraged, because it helps the organizers determine how many people are attending. During the registration process, by providing a way to contact you if you win (phone or email), you are automatically entered into a drawing for attendance prizes, and can participate in voting for the People’s Choice Yard Award!

The Tour booklet and map are now available online

Printed hard copies of the Tour booklet are also available at the following local retailers:

The starting place is wherever you are. Read the hosts’ descriptions of their yards, and choose locations nearest you that most match your goals or interests.

We look forward to seeing you that day!
