Our Mission

The High Plains Environmental Center works to educate communities to become replicable “living laboratories” which demonstrate restorative examples of land-stewardship, native plants, and wildlife habitat.

Core Values

  • COLLABORATION – Economic and environmental interests can be mutually beneficial. We work with people from all walks of life and divergent points of view, and are dedicated to facilitating meaningful dialog about stewarding our natural world.

  • CONSERVATION – We focus on science-based practices that conserve natural resources, emphasizing water conservation and the use of native plants that support wildlife.

  • EDUCATION – Through educational programs we enhance awareness and knowledge of how to live sustainably in our world.

  • COMMUNICATION – We propagate an environment of trust both within our organization and beyond. We strive to create a culture of respectful and effective communication as a model for others.
