The primary mission of Fields Pond Foundation is to provide financial assistance to nature and land conservation organizations that are community-based and that serve to increase environmental awareness by involving local residents in conservation issues.
The Foundation's emphasis stems from its founding Directors' beliefs that the conservation of special places in our environment, and providing public accessibility to those conservation areas, is a desirable end in itself; but it is also a means of building public support for future land and river conservation by increasing the direct connection between individuals and their environment, and fostering active participation in the work of conservation.
We are sad to share the news of the passing of Brian Rehrig after a long illness. Brian served as Executive Director of the Fields Pond Foundation since the inception of the Foundation. Brian’s love of nature inspired his desire to protect it as a grantmaker focused on land conservation and public accessibility to those special places. We have lost a true friend and advocate for the conservation community. Brian’s contributions will be long remembered.
