A note From kim elliman

The current public health crisis reminds us that when we most need the land, it is there to welcome us. As the public turns to nature for comfort and a breath of fresh air, we are especially grateful to our supporters and partners. Let us continue to move forward, knowing the land we’ve protected together is helping to see us through these trying days. Working remotely, our staff remains committed to safeguarding the natural world and our access to nature. We encourage you to keep in touch through our website and check out these updates on our latest projects.
