"We did not inherit the earth from our fathers. We borrowed it from our children."


Our sole mission is to reacclimatize humans to their natural surroundings. Through this process of coming to know, to understand and finally to care about Nature, it is hoped that folks will experience the change in heart necessary for them to take personal responsibility in conserving our native plants and animals, along with restoring the natural habitats in which these organisms live.

We sincerely hope that you will not only enjoy the information presented here, but also put it to good use in your own backyards and other properties that you might own. Stay tuned for updates, as we plan to constantly post new information as it comes to us. We welcome any comments and questions that you might have pertaining to our website and to Nature in general. Please forward them to Stacey Scarce.
