West Michigan Open Yards Landowner Interest Survey

This form is for landowners who are interested in learning more about hosting visitors to their landscape thru West Michigan Open Yards, which was launched in spring 2024. All data provided is kept confidential and nothing will be published anywhere without your express permission.

At WMOY, we know the power of on-site mentoring discussions, and our mission is to directly connect you with others equally interested in improving their own landscape for wildlife.

Should you choose to participate in Open Yards, we will work with you to create a listing on the website for your landscape. Web visitors will peruse your listing along with those of other landscapes each with its own unique features. Interested visitors will register for a specific time slot for each landscape based on each landowner's unique schedule of availability (as chosen by each of you in advance of your listing going live). Registrants will pay a small fee to cover program costs and help support Kent Conservation programs. The registration confirmation email will provide the site address – the only place it will be available.

WMOY is built on a Missouri-based program called St. Louis Open Yards which ran in 2022. While considered successful by the participating landowners and program committee, an organization could not be secured to continue the effort. The West Michigan Open Yards website was converted and updated from the Missouri program. The WMOY website is up and running with current listings which you can view here.

If this all sounds very exciting, and you want us to reach out to you directly to schedule a site visit to discuss the program further, please complete the survey below.
