History & Mission

Trees, Water & People (TWP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 1998 by Stuart Conway and Richard Fox. TWP is staffed by a group of dedicated conservationists who feel strongly about helping communities to better manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends. Our work is guided by two core beliefs:

  • Natural resources are best protected when local people play an active role in their care and management; and

  • Preserving local ecosystems is essential for the ongoing social, economic, and environmental health of communities everywhere.

Trees, Water & People's mission is to improve people's lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage the natural resources upon which their long-term well-being depends.
