Center for Natural Lands Management
The Center for Natural Lands Management was founded in 1990 in California and incorporated as a nonprofit tax exempt organization. We protect sensitive biological resources through professional, science-based stewardship of conservation lands in perpetuity. We assure the perpetual protection of these lands by establishing stewardship endowments, a model which was unique at the time of our founding and over time has become a best practice for land conservation.
Our work focuses on protecting, and restoring native and imperiled species, and their habitats throughout California and in 2011 CNLM expanded into Washington with the acquisition of the South Puget Sound Prairies Program.
By collaborating with nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, corporations, and landowners we protect imperiled species and their habitats in perpetuity. Our headquarters are in Temecula, California with satellite offices and conservation activities in California and Washington.
