CORE VALUES

We value Advocacy for Environmental Stewardship & Education...

because we believe that through education, personal discovery, and transformational experiences, we foster a conservation ethic in current and future generations.  We are committed to advancing a non-political advocacy platform for our work and to connect people with nature to inspire everyone to be good stewards of the environment.

We value Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusiveness in all that we do...

because we believe that every person has something to contribute towards a better future.  We are welcoming and respectful to everyone seeking diverse perspectives, talents and contributions. By creating opportunities and eliminating barriers 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...

because we know that no one organization can solve all problems. We believe in the value of creating meaningful connections as a solution to the environmental challenges we all face.
