Homer Township is rich in history, volunteer spirit, and scenic and natural resources.
The Township is fortunate to have the Open Space program which was established in 1999 through citizen-based initiative. By law the purpose of Open Space is to promote preservation of the natural environment, scenic resources, geological features and historic sites. With that vision in mind the Open Space Planning & Operations Committee is dedicated to promoting opportunities for educational programs, outdoor recreation and conservation practices for our community. In light of rapid residential growth it is important to set aside open land that can be preserved for all residents, wildlife, and nature alike. To date the Township has acquired over 200 Open Space acres, most of which continues to be farmed to allow for the best management of the land. The Open Space Planning & Operations Committee is currently working on long-term plans for the sites.
