Six Rivers Regional Land Conservancy is a non-profit conservation organization made up of members, donors and volunteers who believe it is important to sustain the quality and character of the natural resources that sustain us. We recognize and understand the value of an inviting landscape and a strong and vibrant natural resource base in our communities—it makes them attractive and healthy places to live and attracts people and institutions that create prosperity.
Toward that end our work is with landowners who, on a voluntary basis, choose to take steps to protect their land and the integrity of the natural resources on it. For the most part our work is with private landowners who share these values for our natural heritage and choose to act on them in measurable, permanent ways. Though we are not a government or regulatory agency, on occasion they may have a role in a project we are involved in.
We also recognize that the opposite is true—when natural resources are degraded, our prosperity suffers. As impacts increase, so do costs. Areas are no longer aesthetically pleasing and therefore lose their attraction and retention values. Similarly, public health and infrastructure costs increase—for example treating the drinking water we all require or the discharges into the lakes and streams that provide recreation, beauty and fisheries. These costs are a large component of the increasing tax burdens we all bear.
Our work supports vibrant and healthy economies, communities and natural resources. We invite you to join us as we work to sustain the best qualities of our region.
