The Natural Lands Division adheres to three main goals to guide, prioritize, and assist our conservation and management decisions as well as determine current and future research and educational programs:
• To conserve the natural resources of Mt. Cuba Center in order to protect and support the existence of native Piedmont flora and fauna, including rare and endangered species, while respecting our landscapes and history.
• To make the Natural Lands available to the public through educational programs and instill a greater appreciation of our diverse native piedmont flora and fauna and their ecological role in conservation.
• To facilitate and encourage science-based research projects and collaborate both internally and externally with those who support our Natural Lands’ management objectives.
