Conserving Nature for our Survival
Kerry Leigh, Natural Land Institute
Natural Land Institute, a not for profit organization since 1958 conserves and protects our natural land and waters. Working together with our partners and our community, we safeguard the resources and places that are essential to our health and well-being, wildlife and the economy. Healthy habitats are essential for ecological processes such as capturing carbon in healthy soils, trees and plants, recharging our groundwater where our drinking water comes from, cleaning our air and water, and storing floodwaters as well as providing habitat for pollinators for our food supply. Our vision is that people understand that they are a part of nature, not apart from nature.
