What We Do

We create and expand parks and preserves throughout Northeast Ohio. We partner with public and private landowners to place permanent protections on their land, whether it may be a beautiful natural area, a working family farm, or a site with historical significance. We restore blighted urban properties into useable greenspaces, improving neighborhoods and greening cities.
