We were founded in 2006 and originally operated under the Twin Lakes Conservation Club. In 2007 we became incorporated and are now operating independently, with many successful projects behind us. We have many members, a board of directors and seasonal staff. Our group provides an opportunity for young people and their families to interact with nature in a positive learning environment that endorses a healthy active lifestyle.
