What we do:

As an organization and as individuals we seek and respond to conservation land protection and nature education opportunities as they arise. These are examples: 

    •  serving on boards advising governments on conservation policy and regulation,
    •  sponsoring or organizing public meetings on matters of importance to the community,
    •  participating in and promoting citizen science (bird counts, water monitoring, plant counts),
    •  offering biologist-led interpretive walks,
    •  commissioning scientific brochures on local flora and fauna,
    •  scientifically documenting the ecological value of specific private or public lands,
    •  collaborating with a respected documentary film maker to screen nature films to the public and in schools,
    •  advising and administratively supporting emerging conservation groups,
    •  advising landowners on the mechanics of protecting a natural landscape in perpetuity,
  •  conserving ecologically valuable land–a publicly accessible urban natural area is owned by the group and more than one thousand acres of member-owned private property has been put under conservation easement, land trust and/or Ecogift protection.
