As you know, volunteers are at the heart of all that we do. They make it all possible by sharing their time, skills and expertise to strengthen the work that we do. In this e-news, you'll find a new video created by a volunteer, a new team volunteer opportunity and some follow up information after our very well attended Annual General Meeting.

President's Message

Another successful year! Our capacity to protect vulnerable environments and engage an increasing audience in conservation continues to grow. This is due to our strong culture and our talented people.

Our Culture: The culture of the Conservancy was set firmly in place by the founding members based on their shared motivation to protect the environment through a respectful and cooperative approach to land acquisition, stewardship and outreach. This culture is evident daily in our work and our relationships.
Our People: Each and every one of our supporters and volunteers is important. Monthly donors are growing and major donors and sponsors continue to be enthusiastic. Our incredibly hard working volunteers bring passion and skills to diverse activities. We simply could not accomplish what we do withoutthese people who are endlessly generous with their time, talent and resources. We are so very grateful. Read More
