Our best memories are the times we spend in exceptional woodlands with mature trees, and in old growth forests. These ecosystems sustain themselves without human intervention and provide us with spiritual solace. They are also natural communities that are helping humans to mitigate the effects of climate change. We feel privileged to have initiated the Monica and Bob Leverett Forever-Wild Fund at Kestrel Land Trust to encourage the preservation of forests unmanaged and left to natural processes for years to come.
