Arlington Conservation Council is an environmental non-profit organization involved with conservation efforts in Arlington, TX, and the surrounding Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Our mission is to promote environmental awareness and conservation of Arlington’s natural resources. Our focus is narrow, but our needs are great — and growing fast -- as we recognize the need to live in a sustainable culture.
Arlington has now grown to be the 49th largest city in the nation. As we continue to grow, our city becomes more crowded, our air is dirtier, our water supply shrinks, and our hope for adequate open spaces lessens with each development. For years we’ve worked with other local non-profit groups and city officials to make things better right here at home. There's a lot to do, but with your help we can make a crucial difference.
Some of ACC's efforts include:
- maintaining and expanding the Wildscape at Veterans Park
- educate everyone about the advantages of landscaping homes, businesses, and public places with native plants
