Mission

ACRES’ mission is to promote and protect neighborhood pocket woodlands, one acre at a time.

ACRES empowers citizens and grassroots groups to seek responsible and sustainable land use practices.

ACRES promotes awareness of the intrinsic value of pocket woodlands.

ACRES facilitates environmentally-based education programs that underscore the tangible benefits of these small parcels of land.

The genesis of ACRES is the vast patchwork of rapidly vanishing, small but richly bio-diverse, backyard neighborhood pocket woodlands that support life: animal, plant, and human.

The belief of ACRES is that communities can responsibly plan and implement environmentally sustainable land-use practices, minimizing our collective footprint for the benefit of present and future generations.

Think globally, act locally.
