THE NATURAL WORLD:
A PROVEN SOURCE OF WISDOM
Whether trying to solve soil erosion and carbon storage issues or finding ways to reintegrate our children into the natural world, Conservation Research Institute uses models discernable in nature as our guide. We believe that when our cultural behaviors are in harmony with land and the native plants and animals around us, we are in consilience with our place and ourselves. We always will ask, “Are we building on these relationships or are we mining them away?”
“Until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things, man will not himself find peace."
