ISC-Audubon Preserve Park

Preserve ParkAn Audubon Lifestyles Preserve Park is a managed and protected area of land important for wildlife, and plants or other items of special interest.  While reserved and managed primarily for wildlife and conservation, an Audubon Lifestyles Preserve Park can also provide (depending on the size and lay-out of the property) special opportunities for study and research as well as provide recreational opportunities such as hiking, walking, golfing, equestrian, kayaking, birding, camping, fishing, hunting and other sport and outdoor related activities.


According to the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service an estimated 6,000 acres of open space are lost each day, a rate of 4 acres per minute.  These areas may includes parks, stream and river corridors, and other natural areas within urban and suburban areas or could include forests and grasslands, as well as working farms, ranches, and timberlands and may be public, or privately owned.


These areas are vital to our health, economy and well-being, and provide public benefits and ecosystem services we all need and enjoy, including: clean water, natural flood control, wildlife habitat and biodiversity, recreation and relaxation, timber and other forest products, and jobs. An area designated, managed and used as an Audubon Lifestyle Preserve Park can play an important role in re-connecting people to our natural resources.


What can you do?


By registering land as an Audubon Lifestyles Preserve Park you are setting a precedent for others to follow, and making a positive contribution in sustaining the health of our planet for present and future generations.  Anyone who owns and/or manages an area of land greater than one acre can participate. Landowners that place land into the program make a pledge that the land will not be adversely impacted by development, and will be managed in ways that promote sustainable living and lifestyles, as well as to provide food, shelter, water and space necessary to conserve wildlife.
