LEED ND: Built Project | v1 - LEED 1.0 pilot

Restoration of habitat or wetlands

SLLc10 | Possible 1 point


Restore wildlife habitat and wetlands that have been harmed by previous human activities.


Using only native plants, restore native habitat or pre-development water bodies or wetlands on the project site in an area equal to or greater than 10% of the development footprint and remove any invasive species on the site. Protect such areas from development in perpetuity by donating or selling the land or a conservation easement on the land to an accredited land trust or relevant public agency.
