Who We Are


Commonweal Conservancy is a nonprofit conservation-based community-development organization dedicated to forging deep and sustaining connections among people, land, and the built environment.

In our commitment to integrating the goals of environmental protection and community building, we acquire signature landscapes that define a community's sense of place and spearhead the planning, entitlement and development processes associated with inclusive and engaging place-making. Our practice of integrative conservation development aims to provide for public needs such as affordable housing, educational opportunities, and economic development—as well as the need for substantial open space that's protected, accessible, and deeply cared for.

A spirit of positive collaboration guides our work. We are committed to providing exceptional service to our partners and to encouraging an organizational culture of alliance making and skill sharing.
