To increase climate and landscape resiliency, we need healthy landscapes at a regional scale. Design strategies and planning actions that support healthy ecosystems and emerging land use and development need to coexist in full partnership with nature.


Cultures spring from a sustained relationship place. Communities tell powerful stories in physical form that can inspire future stewardship and care. Design and planning that celebrates these connections advances equity, diversity, and inclusion.


Wildlife at all scales needs ‘wild places’. Wildlife also needs those institutions that provide for their care and well being while educating the rest of us about the ‘rights’ of wildlife to coequal habitation of planet earth.
