About U.N.I.S

Do you have a family of skunks under your porch? Ants in the kitchen? Fungus on your tree, or questions about lawn care? Then you've come to the right place! At U.N.I.S we actively promote methods for coexisting with the urban environment, because when it comes to wildlife, there are no easy answers.

Formerly divided into two departments; HIC (horticultural information center) and WIC (wildlife information center), the two were combined to create U.N.I.S in 2001. We have recently expanded our services to include guidelines on Green Living, which include proper composting, recycling, organic lawn care and water and energy saving techniques. Test your green living knowledge through one of our three quizzes, you may pleasantly surprise yourself with how much you already know!

We operate completely on donations, and are not-for-profit, which means that we can offer you a charitable receipt. We are here, purely and simply, to help urban residents find peace with nature. Please donate to U.N.I.S today, and join our very first LOGO competition. U.N.I.S has gone without a logo for too long, and you might just have the right stuff to make UNIS a household name!
