The Preserve Model
The Preserve is an experimental, living conservation project, designed to incorporate both residential homes and The Preserve’s abundant wildlife, aesthetic and environmental value. Scientists, natural resource management professionals, and Landowners collaborate to caretake the exceptional ecological value and beauty of The Preserve’s 20,000 acres – 18,000 of which will remain undeveloped in perpetuity.
