About Juniper

We Work Hard To Provide You The Best Quality Plants And Services

Juniper’s NatureScaping was founded in 2006 to counter habitat loss effecting wildlife in the Midwest… by helping people help animals at home.

The essential lands and waters of the region support thousands of native species, many facing multiple threats to their long-term survival. 12 of these animals have become ambassadors for the region’s wildlife and the ecosystems they inhabit.

Housed at Miami University, Project Dragonfly is an education reform initiative with master’s degree programs in biology, graduate courses, learning media, public exhibits, and community partnerships across the U.S. and globally. Our graduate students are opening new frontiers in community innovation and education while earning their master’s degrees. They work alongside nomadic herders saving wild horses in Mongolia, citizen scientists increasing pollinator diversity in the Bronx, Maasai women pursuing equity and sustainability in Kenya, and conservationists leading the recovery of burrowing owls in California. We champion inquiry-driven learning and shared action to support a better, more collaborative, just, and sustainable future.

The Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) is a master’s degree program that fosters professional leadership, participatory education, sustainability, and conservation in the U.S. AIP students combine online courses from Miami University with extraordinary learning experiences and field study at premier zoos and botanical gardens in select communities across the nation.
