"I have been, all my life, what is known as a conservationist. It seems clear beyond possibility of argument that any given generation of men can have only lease, not ownership, of the earth; and one essential term of the lease is that the earth be handed down to the next generation with unimpaired potentialities. This is the conservationist’s concern."
We spoke with the late Mr. Haig-Brown's daughter Mary about her family's involvement in protecting nature and about her father's inspiring writings. Mary Haig-Brown a HAT supporter and Habitat Steward not only protects important space for wildlife on her land, but also takes the lead actively volunteering with Friends of Tod Creek Watershed alongside Peninsula Streams Society for the restoration of Todd Creek.
