Our Mission

To protect and preserve sacred natural space - God's creation - and to provide community access for physical and mental well-being through renewing connections to the earth, to each other, and to ourselves.


Our Vision

To provide opportunities and programs that foster creativity, stimulate critical thinking, and strengthen our connection to the natural world. We envision Big East Fork Valley as a large protected space of healing, education, and recreation available to our guests and members, as well as partnering organizations.
