Fort Collins, CO (October 14, 2005)-Trees, Water & People is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1998 by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox, and is staffed by a group of dedicated conservationists who feel strongly about helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.
Their work is guided by two core beliefs:
* That natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management
* Preserving local trees, wetlands, and watersheds is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.
Trees, Water & People develops and manages continuing reforestation, watershed protection, renewable energy, appropriate technology, and environmental education programs in Latin America and the American West. Their international programs have been recognized nationally and internationally, receiving the Ashden Award for Renewable Energy, as well as awards from Kodak, The Conservation Fund, and etown, the nationally syndicated environmental radio show. Their programs have been featured on National Geographic Television, National Public Radio, and in the Christian Science Monitor.
