The Nature Conservancy is a global environmental nonprofit working to create a world where people and nature can thrive. Founded in the U.S. through grassroots action in 1951, The Nature Conservancy has grown to become one of the most effective and wide-reaching environmental organizations in the world. Nature Sacred and The Nature Conservancy are partnered to bring amplified environmental benefits to the communities served by the Sacred Places in these urban centers.
We worked with AGU in Dupont Circle to turn their outdoor plaza space into a nature sacred green space that includes stormwater retention and reduces urban heat, while simultaneously creating an inviting space for people to reflect with nature.
Catholic cemeteries are sacred burial grounds for those who have left the earth, but they also serve as powerful places for the living. Mount Olivet Cemetery’s green space is no exception, and is a welcome center of reflection, comfort and tranquility.
