The Fishers Environmental Working Group (EWG) is governmental department representatives and non-governmental stakeholders working together to help the City of Fishers prepare for the impacts of climate change.

These departments include the Mayor’s Office, Fishers Parks, Engineering, Planning and Zoning, Public Works, Hamilton Southeastern Schools, and more. The Fishers Environmental Working is broken into four subgroups, including: 

  • Ecosystems 
  • Energy
  • Recreation & Trails 
  • Rural & Resource Lands 


Maintain and restore resilience to ecosystems and habitats at multiple scales in the face of a changing climate. Integrate human activities more closely with natural processes; support active resource-based economies; and contribute to the identity and health of the region.  



Serve an economic function by attracting investment decisions, businesses and people, and support community development efforts as a consideration in all new construction and development. Development should be designed to include and prepare for energy efficient factors.

Recreation & Trails

Recreation & Trails

Create accessible opportunities for recreation and support better mobility by linking parks, open spaces, and community destinations. Conserve energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and maintain biodiversity through habitat conservation and restoration. 

Rural & Resource Lands

Rural & Resource Lands 

Maintain a diverse and resilient landscape of rural and resource lands owned and operated by those who live in or are connected to the city. This landscape provides the food, resources, and ecosystem services we need and preserves our legacy for future generations.
