Kim and Tom co-founded Habitat Works in 2003, based on the principal that people need authentic opportunities to be involved in tangible work to improve conditions in the natural world. 

Both Kim and Tom were active volunteers in the forests in Southern California and had a deep interest in local ecology and wildlife issues.  But there is more to do than pick up trash and plant trees.  Working with ecologists, botanists, biologists and agency managers we are able to offer every day people a direct action opportunity to improve conditions in our local backcountry.  There are often declining plant or animal species that benefit from our ongoing efforts in many areas.   

Stewardship is simply another way to make a difference.  We still support other non-profits with our financial resources, we still communicate with our representatives, but we're also out there with boots on the ground, opening wildlife corridors, removing invasive species, conducting surveys, collecting seeds and many other beneficial projects.  Habitat Works is our personal commitment to connecting people to unique opportunities, having fun in the out of doors, and making a real difference in Southern California's wildlands.

Habitat improvements are all we do, with an emphasis on simplicity.  We work with local volunteers and low-impact logistics to accomplish our objectives.  We know that stewardship too has a carbon footprint, and we strive to keep ours as small as possible.  

We would love to meet and work with you!  Pick a project that interests you and come out with us!  Take home the sense of satisfaction from accomplishing something of value in your own backyard.  It's volunteers like you that make the difference!
