The Town of Cary is a thriving, diverse community in North Carolina’s renowned Research Triangle Region. It has been ranked one of the best small cities in America, top 20 safest cities in America, and one of the best places to live in the country. In 2014 Google chose Cary as one of the seven NC municipalities to be part of its high-speed Google Fiber effort. In addition to being known for the many local universities and for being a technology hub, the Town of Cary is also known for being a beautiful and sustainable community. It boasts an extensive greenway trail network of more than 80 miles of natural settings for walking, jogging and bicycling and it has a long history of environmental stewardship programming. Some of the many offerings include Stevens Nature Center Educational Programming, environmental outreach programs, water conservation programs, and solid waste reduction efforts. The Community Wildlife Habitat program, dubbed the Cary Garden for Wildlife Program, is a partnership that reinforces the Town’s strong commitments to environmental stewardship and a healthy community.
