Our people-focused, business-minded approach has enduring impact and multiple benefits.  We’re more ecologically and community oriented than our for-profit “business” competitors, and more economically focused than our “conservation” competitors.  We are positioned perfectly to occupy the space in between – helping people understand that it’s possible to unite their economic and environmental priorities and achieve results that benefit both.

Using a variety of transactions and continually reinvesting our funds into new conservation projects once others are finished, we’ve helped permanently preserve more than 7.8 million acres of land in all 50 states.
