Conserving Our Natural Areas

Land Use/Conservation Policy


Fayetteville Natural Heritage Association

  • Fayetteville’s natural Ozark beauty has been one of its greatest attractions for nearly two centuries. Our city consistently ranks in the top ten on quality-of-life lists compiled by various groups across the nation. As a result, thousands of people choose to relocate to our area each year.

Fayetteville and Washington County have an amazing array of animal and plant life that are native to the area due to the variety of unique habitats that are present. The Ozark hills and forests converge from the south and east, while the western prairie extends to the north and west.

FNHA is dedicated to preserving the natural areas in and around Fayetteville and its environs for future generations......... Founding Chair Pete Heinzelmann
