[Mission] We promote the sustainable use of the earth's resources through education, demonstration, and research.
[Vision] We inspire and challenge individuals and communities to achieve ecologically sustainable lifestyles to secure a sustainable future for all life on earth.
How do we do this? We educate children in our 130 acre outdoor classroom through interactive, hands on sustainability and nature-based programming for schools and other groups. We partner with businesses, universities, and other non-profits to teach the principles of sustainability. We demonstrate this ‘green' lifestyle by making our own biodiesel from used restaurant oil, giving tours of our own Sustainable Living Demonstration Home that is powered by solar power and geothermal, applying strict green practices for our offices, and many other ways!
