Eagles Mere Conservancy
Land Trust, Trail Group
Mission or Purpose
Who are we? The Conservancy is a community organization which actively supports environmental, forest management, reforestation and in-town forest activities in and around Eagles Mere. All aspects of our Stewardship are managed by volunteer board of trustees guided by three core values – Awareness, Respect and Responsibility.
What we do is made up of activities and programs focused on three areas:
- Preservation – land acquisition and maintenance, reforestation and hiking trail maintenance.
- Education – programs for children and adults, periodic communiques and forums related to environmental concerns.
- Recreation – forest rambles, hikes, and educational walks.
FIVE GUIDING PRINCIPLES UNDERLIE OUR PLANNING
- We honor our fiduciary responsibility to hold the land in trust.
- What we do is bigger than the organization. “What is best for Eagles Mere?” will always be the operative question.
- We are attentive to community inquiry concerning our business and actions.
- We strive to earn the title “Trustworthy Steward” by acting credibly with an eye cast toward future generations.
- We are apolitical.
