Philosophy

We believe that the choices people make every day define our future as a species and a planet, and we are committed to making choices that will sustain us all.

Here’s an example:

Once upon a time, a family of beavers moved in at Walking Lightly Ranch and started felling trees around the pond and damming the stream every night, causing the water to rise. If this continued, the pond would become a marsh and our home could ultimately flood! While we pondered the situation, the beaver came every night to make his dam. For over 20 years now, our choice has been to get up every day and remove it. This allows the water to flow again. This choice has supported a thriving beaver habitat AND we have a dry home and a pristine swimming hole.
