Our Challenges & Goals

We are committed to serving our region’s conservation and environmental needs.

Our mission is not shaped by short-term fiscal hopes or by specific projects with guaranteed funding streams. Rather, it is fixed upon the strategies that will forever forward Wildlands Conservancy to be as responsive as possible to our region’s conservation and environmental needs.

Every five years, to keep our actions toward these ends in full view, our board of directors, key staff and involved constituencies engage in the development of our strategic plan. The goals identified for 2016-2020, listed here, will continue the fulfillment of our mission by elevating Wildlands to a totally new level.
