What We Do

All conservation organizations share the same basic mission. The mission of these organizations all lie somewhere on a continuum between preparing the next generation to inherit the Earth and leaving a healthy planet for them to inherit. The Wilderness Center (TWC) is a cutting edge regional conservation/education organization that has planted itself firmly in the middle of the continuum.


More than fifty years ago, children encountered nature on walks to school and while playing in local forests and fields. By the mid 60’s however, visionaries in our community recognized that these precious encounters with nature were gradually disappearing from our everyday lives. We could no longer depend upon chance to provide personal encounters with the natural world. Intentional action was required to ensure a human connection to nature. These visionaries acted. They founded TWC to ensure these precious encounters with nature would remain a part of our lives – our legacy.
