Judy Anderson

P.O. Box 617

Kinderhook, NY 12106

Would you like to see your organization expand its impact in a way that enriches lives, builds a lasting commitment to conservation, and builds your organizational capacity?

We work with all-volunteer and staffed organizations—primarily conservation organizations—who want to engage with people based upon shared values, a connection to building a better and more inclusive community through conservation, and a Culture of Appreciation.

Learn More »

Why? Because we feel an urgency to build resilient, impactful, strategic, and compassionate organizations. We believe that together, no matter where we live or what we do, conservation should and can enrich the lives of all people in tangible ways and build more inclusive, thoughtful, and healthy communities.

Our approach

We work with you to enhance your leadership, to create a culture that inspires participation and volunteer efforts, and to increase contributions for the organization and related programs and projects.

Rather than do the work for you, we focus on coaching: providing you with the strategy, tactics, skills, feedback, brainstorming, examples, and copy-writing/editing support that allow you to continue to grow and expand your impact beyond our work together.

We focus on communications and engagement that draw people together—and to your land trust—using techniques from neuroscience, marketing, donor-centered engagement, environmental physiology, conservation psychology, and organizational and behavioral change theory.

In partnership with W Design, or your own designers, we also work to help transform your outreach, educational materials, and marketing to be more visually inspiring and impactful.
