Environmental Stewardship

 
 

My entire career and predominant education have been dedicated to an environmental stewardship approach, in some form or another.

Environmental stewardship defined: The responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices. Aldo Leopold (1887–1949) championed environmental stewardship based on a land ethic "dealing with man's relation to land and to the animals and plants which grow upon it." Stewardship also refers to the “careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one's care (natural resources)".
