Trees, Water & People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1998 by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox. It is staffed by a group of dedicated conservationists who feel strongly about helping communities to better manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. Our work is guided by two core beliefs:
- Natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management; and
- Preserving local ecosystems is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.
Trees, Water & People's mission is to improve people's lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.
