The stories that a community tells about itself reflects its ideals and aspirations. We seek to tell stories that encourage a cultural identity of stewardship and the ability of a single person to make a difference.

We are a community resource for natural resource conservation and wildlife protection.
We are respected for the role we play in the appreciation and conservation of birds and habitats. We will use new members, new organizational growth, and community support to strengthen and expand our conservation programs and to increase community expertise.
We operate with integrity.
We value partnerships.
By strategically partnering with other community organizations, government, and individuals and through communication and networking, we can more rapidly and effectively deliver important conservation results today, and build a stronger and diverse environmental constituency for tomorrow.
