Center for Natural Lands Management, South Sound Prairies
The Center for Natural Lands Management is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and sustaining native species and their habitats. Since 1990, we have worked to create sustainable, perpetually protected conservation lands through use of a science-based model for efficiently managing natural lands, especially habitats that include endangered plant and animal species, and wetlands. CNLM manages over 70 preserves in California with a suite of rare species, and also includes the South Sound Program in Washington.
The mission of the Center for Natural Lands Management is:
(a) to conserve native species, their habitat and functioning ecosystems in perpetuity;
(b) to own and/or manage lands in an ecologically beneficial manner consistent with local, state and federal environmental laws and with science-based stewardship;
(c) to promote the conservation values of such lands through education;
(d) to promote and facilitate uses of such lands by the public that preserve the conservation values; and
(e) to cooperate with public and private entities in their efforts to protect native species and their habitats for the public benefit.
