Mission and Vision
Mission and Vision

Mission Statement:
We preserve and restore natural areas and open space, protect rivers and watersheds, and promote stewardship of our environment.

We envision a region where through education and collaboration:

  • Protected natural areas provide habitats for wildlife and places where people can enjoy nature forever.
  • Public and private partnerships accelerate the pace of land preservation for the enrichment of all.
  • People benefit from and enjoy clean and healthy streams, wetlands and lakes.
  • All land development incorporates stewardship of the environment.
  • People understand and embrace conservation issues, and act to preserve the environment.
  • The Conservation Foundation is a recognized expert and reasoned voice on these conservation issues, and with the help of its members and donors, provides the leadership required to achieve this vision.
  •  

Our Strategic Focus 

Over the next five years, The Conservation Foundation will increase its efforts
to transition to a more community-based, grass-roots conservation organization

with impactful on-the-ground programs and projects tailored to the needs of each of the four core counties we serve. This strategic approach will achieve:  

  • Deeper mission impact in our communities 
  • A consistent and expected presence in our communities 
  • Meaningful and long-lasting relationships with communities and individuals 
  • A more engaged (grass-roots) community in local conservation 
  • Broader community support for TCF and for local conservation programs 
  • Enlightened communities where conservation is encouraged and is a core value
