Building a network of collaborative stakeholders is vital to lasting stewardship of protected lands.

For over 34 years, Winnakee has built effective public private partnerships with local and state governments and collaborated with nonprofits to enhance programs that serve our community and improve our organization’s efficacy, impact, and sustainability.  Winnakee strongly believes that a central part of our mission is building collaborations that make conservation work last.  We are grateful for these partnerships.
