interactions with nature
We nurture children and adults through environmental education and encouraging meaningful interaction with nature.
With over 250 conservation easements on over 65,000 acres in 13 states, our team is poised to guide you through the conservation easement process to conserve your land for future generations.
Our team can work with you to protect land that has been in your family for generations, so that future generations may enjoy it.
If you have a piece of land you would like to donate, our team would love to speak with you.
We offer additional services to help landowners better understand, document, and improve the habitat and wildlife on their properties.
Generally mitigation banks are encumbered by conservation easements with long-term stewardship requirements.
