GC FoundersOne of the Stewardship Foundation’s primary initial goals, upon its founding in 1998, was to preserve the area now known as Grace Cole Nature Park.  In the years since, our preservation efforts have included mobilizing community input regarding environmental issues, helping our citizens learn about our natural environment and threats facing it, assisting area educators in their classrooms,  writing grants, identifying and assisting purchase of sensitive habitats, recruiting volunteers, and getting our hands dirty in the field planting tree, repairing stream banks, and removing invasive plants.
