A special thank you from our administrative assistant to our volunteers…

Something that Mark, our Executive Director always says to me is “Courtney, remember, even when you’re filing paper, or making phone calls what you are really doing is protecting land.”


An Alvar Adventure with the Green Snakes on the Plain

On your mark, get set… go! The light was as green as our name and we were off to observe as many species of wildlife as possible on the Carden limestone plain. Surrounded by alvars, wetlands, woodlands, and the array of wildlife they support, you can’t help but marvel at the wonders of nature before your eyes. I invite you to ride along with team Green Snakes on the Plain as I reflect on an annual tradition, fourteen years strong, known as the Couchiching Conservancy’s Carden Challenge.
