We think differently to make connections.
Across our conservation, restoration, and community work, we look for innovative ways to do the most good. How can we create new tools and strategies to help solve our region’s most pressing needs? What new policies, funding mechanisms, or conservation tools can we develop? Are there fresh ways to apply existing strategies, like cooperatives and social impact funds, to maximize collective benefits — and equity?
We like to think differently and take creative leaps. And sometimes it makes all the difference, like with our Wadajir and Hilltop work, where we’re combining a community-led design process, a co-op ownership model, and Cross Laminated Timber to make inviting and attainably priced options for neighborhoods.
As some of our more established programs, like Evergreen Carbon Capture and Transfer of Development Rights, continue to mature, we can see the results, like thousands of tons of carbon sequestered and hundreds of rural acres conserved.
