Bold and Sustained Action
In just ten years, Pepperwood has established itself as a leader in crafting solutions for resilience in Northern California’s wild and working lands. Our 3,200-acre reserve and the Dwight Center for Conservation Science serve as a natural laboratory for researchers from around the world, a center for ecological education, and a conservation think tank. Serving tens of thousands of California residents annually, Pepperwood’s operations are supported through individual gifts, foundation and government grants, and fee-for-service revenue. Our calling is to bring scientists and community together to ensure that human life and our natural world continue to thrive together for generations to come.
