Who Are We?

F.E.R.N. is short for Flora, Fauna, & Fungi Ecological Resource Network.

Our mission is to support conservation by promoting synergy between individuals, communities, and organizations. Our work addresses the need for greater connection and communication in conservation.

We do that by promoting information equity which connects individuals with the social and physical resources to facilitate communication and knowledge.

We also connect ecological knowledge-bearers across different specialties so they can collaborate on mutual goals.

These aspects often come together to engage people with the natural world as we bring culture and nature together into a range of events and eco-experiences.
