“If the land mechanism as a whole is good then every part is good, whether we understand it or not…To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.”
Aldo Leopold. Conservation, Round River
Conservation for future generations…
Through the years the Foundation has been entrusted to preserve and protect a number of other very special things including scientific collections of birds, bird eggs, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, insects, and plants, and taxidermic birds , as well as an array of unique wildlife panoramas depicting wildlife and habitats found on the Welder Wildlife Refuge. Unlike many museums, most of our natural history collections are available for use and study by biologists and wildlife professionals. Professionals and the public are also welcome use our library by special appointment through the Foundation’s Headquarters; however. The public can view our art and natural history collections during special tours offered by the Foundation.
