A suburb of St. Louis, Chesterfield is filled with people who are passionate about wildlife, native plants and a healthy environment. The habitat team's anchor project was to establish a native tallgrass prairie on the site of the homestead of former Missouri Governor Bates at Faust County Park. This site was later designated the state's first "Grow Native" demonstration garden. Chesterfield now has native flora in its road medians, native landscaping at City Hall and a butterfly garden at Central Park. The city hosts a Tree, Earth and Arbor Day celebration every April.
