space for all. it’s in our nature.

In the natural world, biodiversity is the hallmark of a thriving ecosystem. We believe the same is true for the Natural Lands community. We strive to build an inclusive organization that reflects the communities we serve and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees, partners, supporters, volunteers, and visitors.  

We stay true to our mission—land for life, nature for all—by protecting our region’s open space and making it available to all, free of charge. Natural Lands is committed to making the outdoors safe and welcoming for people of all races, origins, and identities. 

As we each do our part to protect open space, care for nature, and connect people to the outdoors, we seek to do so with enthusiasm, responsibility, equity, inclusivity, respect, and curiosity 

Natural Lands’ committee on inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility (our IDEA Team) is made up of staff from every department. The IDEA Team works to identify needs, provide resources and training, and promote ongoing conversation about how Natural Lands can build a more inclusive workplace and a more inclusive outdoors. 

As we learn and evolve, we know we will not always get things right. We welcome ongoing dialog with our staff and our community.

We seek to hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our organization stronger.
