To save only one part of this place
is to save none of it
The connection between humans and nature is indisputable. Less so are the connections between our natural, built and social worlds. But for us, this inherent interconnection is the key to unlocking solutions to a healthy and resilient region. Using land as our grounding to create and partner on the most effective projects to sustain our place, we apply our skills and experience to the challenges through this prism of connectivity. What started out as a land conservation organization 25 years ago has today become a design-and-build non-profit; one that both designs land-centered, innovative solutions to the issues and implements them on the ground.
Whether in the forest or in urban centers, we recognize the need to save more than just museum pieces of land. Equally necessary is the conservation of the wild lands, working lands and open spaces that support the health and well-being of all.
Healthy, vibrant cities are key to addressing population growth and climate change. For us this means working with local communities and partners to drive policies promoting livable cities that can accommodate our growing numbers while maintaining a good quality of life for all residents. It also means restoring and maintaining urban green spaces and envisioning new uses for properties on which healthy, green mixed-use projects can be built close to transit corridors and town centers.
