Mission Statement

Our mission is to connect people to our lands present and past.


Vision: Ivy Creek Foundation inspires awareness of the relationships between people and land through education and active stewardship of our natural and cultural history.

Values: The Ivy Creek Foundation values the quality of our lands and the biodiversity of life it nurtures. We seek to provide – to as broad an audience as possible – experiences that increase appreciation of the natural world and that foster a greater understanding of the natural and cultural context of the lands under our care, so that future generations will make wise decisions about land use and natural resources.


The Ivy Creek Foundation aims to

• Conserve the natural state of lands under our care and management;
• Use our lands and programs to focus attention on best management practices for natural resources and wildlife;
• Protect native flora and fauna, and promote the appreciation of both;
• Teach the value of natural spaces and natural history to as broad an audience as possible;
• Foster an understanding of how human cultures have worked with and on the land through time; and
• Explore the role of history in the context of the land that supports us all as a community.
