Mission: To inspire commitment to the thoughtful care of the environment.
Vision: To provide exceptional programs and experiences in environmental education.
We believe in teaching and engendering in our young a love and reverence for nature and all things pertaining to it.
We believe in the importance of providing training in ecology and conservation.
We believe we must give our community the realization that in nature we are all part of one another and whatever happens to one species inevitably will affect the whole chain of nature, including us. This knowledge is necessary to be good stewards of the land and protectors of our natural resources.
