Conserving the Present: Ensuring the Future

Connecting people and place through science, education and action.

A fundraising campaign for NorthWoods Stewardship Center

Make an exponential difference

Spreading awareness is a great way to help support our cause.

If your child attended an after school program or summer camp, if your teen spent the summer on a NorthWoods Conservation Corps crew, if you worked with a licensed NorthWoods forester to carefully manage your woodlot, or if you enjoyed any of the Northeast Kingdom’s many scenic hiking trails, then you share with us our mission of connecting people with nature. Your involvement is critical to the success of our mission. 

Thank you for your commitment and support.

The challenges that threaten our environment often seem endless and overwhelming: climate change, encroaching development pressures, water pollution, and problems with invasive species to name but a few. NorthWoods meets these challenges every day. Over the past year we have worked with concerned landowners to plant acres of trees to buffer waterways, introduced thousands of children to the wonders and workings of nature, expanded conservation jobs and training for teens in five New England states, and helped many landowners manage their forests effectively and sustainably.

We will continue to meet these challenges, but we need YOUR generous support.

Our collective power for change is much greater than the threats we face. It is in this spirit that a committed friend has offered to match all contributions up to $15,000 to support the work of the NorthWoods Stewardship Center. For our new friends who are considering a first-time gift, this is perfect timing. Every donation is doubled!

Please consider making your generous gift now, so we can continue our journey towards an environmental future of sustainability, education, and science.
