What We Do

Ecotone's vision is to help create and maintain healthy, productive landscapes through insightful ecological stewardship by the primary users and decision makers of the land. 

 

We conceptualize landscape conservation and restoration initiatives, bring together project teams, identify and pursue funding sources, and direct the project’s detailed design and implementation.

 

Projects

Ecotone’s Projects encompass five areas of expertise, as indicated by the pictures on the right (hover and click for more information).

Many Ecotone projects bring together these areas of expertise in a holistic approach to address landowner concerns with the land. Ecotone projects, therefore, are known for combining landscape planning, ecological restoration, and public stewardship education.

 

Ecotone's work had been focusing on specific themes as key strategies toward large landscape conservation inspired by E.O. Wilson's Half Earth vision and the international 30x30 vision. Ecotone contributes to establishing resilient ecosystems and landscape connectivity throughout the northern Rio Grande bioregion. The themes include: wildlife corridor conservation, Piñon-Juniper ecosystem health, water storage in headwater forest ecosystems, wetland conservation, community and ecosystem adaptation to wildfire, conservation of iconic landscapes, and soil health.
