In its broadest sense, stewardship is the recognition of our collective responsibility to retain the quality and abundance of our land, air, water and biodiversity, and to manage this natural capital in a way that conserves all of its values, be they environmental, economic, social or cultural.

How We Get There

We think the definition above best describes what stewardship truly means. But we also recognize that stewardship is a journey, and the commitment that comes with being good stewards takes time and effort.

We are committed to helping people on their stewardship journey.
Being or becoming a good steward means:

  1. Understanding the value of ecological goods and services
  2. Recognizing important stewardship priorities
  3. Applying key stewardship principles in all our land and resource use decisions
  4. Learning from those who provide good stewardship examples
