We value Environmental Stewardship & Advocacy for Education
We are committed to nature and to people. We believe that every person can make a positive difference. Through education, personal discovery, and transformational experiences, we foster a conservation ethic in current and future generations. By connecting people with nature, we inspire everyone to be stewards of the environment.
We value Diversity, Equity & Inclusiveness in all that we do
We are welcoming and respectful to everyone and seek diverse perspectives, talents and contributions. We believe that every person has something to contribute towards a better future and that when people feel a sense of belonging, they are equipped with the power to create change towards a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable world. We are committed to eliminating the barriers that prevent all voices from being heard and present in our natural world. By creating opportunities for the outdoor world to be accessible to people regardless of their educational, ethnic, or social background, we believe we will have a greater impact on creating a more sustainable planet. We work on ensuring that our policies, procedures and offerings are equitable and available to all.
We value Collaboration & Partnerships...
