In addition to entrepreneurship, the foundation also has a mission of land stewardship, which plays out at Big Rock Valley (BRV), our headquarters in southwest Michigan. Comprised of 2,000 acres of woodland, wetland and prairie, BRV’s diverse habitats support a wide variety of flora and fauna, including many species that are endangered or threatened.

To preserve BRV’s environmental integrity, we employ a number of innovative land-management practices. We also allow academic researchers to use the property for studies that help expand the knowledge base of conservation science. The videos here take a closer look at BRV’s unusual biodiversity.
