JEFFERS GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Educated Children

Earth's Best Environmental Stewards
It is our conviction at Jeffers Foundation that teaching primary age children proper environmental principles is an essential element in responsible earth stewardship. It follows that a major mission of Jeffers Foundation is to encourage and make possible for young people experiences in environmental education. We sponsor/support initiatives which encourage the establishment and development of Environmental Education Programs in individual schools and school districts as well as in other public and private groups. We support Environmental Education teachers, teacher development materials and programs designed to help young persons learn that they are responsible for the world they live in.

Nature Preserved

Special Places to Share and Enjoy
We therefore, search out these natural "islands" in the world around us and secure them with a conservation easement to be maintained by a suitable nonprofit entity which will make available forever, their special qualities and attributes for everyone.

Productive Partnerships

The Synergy of Like Minds and Diverse Means
Jeffers Foundation is only one resource. We have discovered many others who have the same or similar goals. We wish to establish relationships with as many of these as possible to accomplish our mission. We seek to identify networks of like-minded organizations and individuals. We will partner with schools and school districts, counties, cities, towns and neighborhoods; with environmentally responsible businesses and with individuals who have as their goal the environmental education of children and the preservation of natural settings. We desire to be a catalyst in creating synergistic relationships which involve partners at the local, state, and national level.
