Love the land.
Pass it on.

We evaluate how land uses and protection efforts will impact the things our community values – access to our majestic shorelines; opportunities for hiking, birding, canoeing, biking, fishing, and other outdoor activities; safe, clean water; respect for private property rights; and a healthy economy.


WITH THE SUPPORT OF INDIVIDUAL DONORS, FOUNDATIONS AND VOLUNTEERS, AND THE PARTNERSHIP OF LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL AGENCIES, WE HAVE PROTECTED MORE THAN 39,000 ACRES OF LAND AND MORE THAN 121 MILES OF SHORELINE ALONG THE REGION’S EXCEPTIONAL RIVERS, LAKES AND STREAMS.
