What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our mission is to preserve and protect the rural character of the region for public benefit. Land conservation, stewardship, community commitment and organizational integrity are the four priorities we see as key to achieve our mission.

Land conservation benefits everyone one. It is essential that a broad demographic understands and values the benefits of our conserved land and becomes involved in our activities. By doing so, we hope that landowners will consider protecting their acreage for the next generation. We also believe that an effective communication message will result in new active members who will continue to uphold the values of Ausbon Sargent.

The best way to achieve all of these goals is to continue on the path of being a trusted organization of excellence as evidenced by our financial stability, strong leadership and management.
We have been able to attract qualified and capable trustees to service on our board. Ausbon Sargent's professional staff is viewed as a strength by members, volunteers, landowners, partners and supporters.

Annually, Ausbon Sargent updates its succession plans for employees, board, and committees, as well as, reviewing our fund development plan. The board of trustees is unanimous in their commitment to maintain accreditation and appropriate independent financial oversight.

Stewardship goes hand in hand with land conservation. As a qualified conservation organization, we are legally required to fulfill our obligation to protect our land now and forever. Annually, the staff reviews the most efficient and effective monitoring resources and strategies.

We have conserved more than 11,000 acres in our region. But there is more acreage that is worthy of protection .
