It all starts with the land.
At OSI, our mission to protect land isn’t solely environmental — it’s also to preserve the way of life that protected land makes possible.
For us, land is at the heart of all we do – and all we accomplish. We approach land conservation and its protection as our path to achieve big, meaningful, lasting goals.
Our work saves land to protect water sources and farms. We create parks and work to improve them to get more people outside where they can develop connections to natural world. We target ecologically resilient landscapes and critical “buffer” properties to respond to the damages of climate change. And, we support grassroots organizations to encourage others to become engaged.
In short, we protect land because our lives, our well-being and our communities depend on it.
