About Us

Since 1999, Conservation Land Stewardship (CLS) has been offering native landscape restoration and management services throughout the upper Midwest.  It has been our mission to provide our clients with the highest level of service, and attention to detail that is unsurpassed in the industry.  We are proud of the reputation we have built for quality field work, exceptional customer service, and intimate knowledge of the native plant communities that we work in every day.

Based in Elmhurst, Illinois, our service area reaches into Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Iowa. We serve clients throughout the region, and can adapt our design and implementation strategies to fit a wide variety of geographic, economic, and cultural contexts. CLS maintains a full fleet of construction and agricultural equipment specialized for ecological restoration and management.  We can work efficiently where others cannot—from the most sensitive natural areas, to crowded urban streetscapes.
