Who We Are

We are an organization that brings people together to work on common priorities for achieving sustainability on the landscape.

All of our efforts support stewardship: by improving understanding of healthy ecosystems, supporting grass-roots community stewardship efforts, and encouraging the development of practices and policies that support sustainable resource use.

A not-for-profit, charitable organization, we are governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and operated by core staff.
