Communities around the globe are experiencing significant losses of wildlife, plants, and other biodiversity as a result of shrinking habitat, the spread of nonnative invasive species, and a growing disconnect between people and the land.
Land conservation is not keeping pace with growing threats to our lands, waters, wildlife and ways of life. Every 30 seconds, the United States loses a football field of natural lands to roads, houses, pipelines and other development. Forty acres of farmland in the United States are lost to development every hour.
We seek to reconnect people and nature and in doing so, empower citizens with the skills and knowledge necessary to address the biodiversity crisis in their own neighborhoods and yards.
