Sustainability

We have spent over a one million per year on average since our creation in 1996 to support our conservation, restoration and cross-border education programs. Moving forward, we are looking for avenues to continue funding our work. The productive use of our restored lands through sustainable grazing, native grass seed harvesting, honey production and pollinator plant propagation is one avenue that we are exploring in the San Bernadino Ranch.  Successful revenue generation would help us cover our operational costs and offer a self-financing model to ranchers wishing to replicate our work.   LEARN MORE 

Community

Knowing that the lands are too far reaching to take on alone, CLO embraced partnerships with researchers and organizations whose work dovetailed our mission. Our lands are used as demonstration site by Fundo Mexicano para la Conservation de la Naturaleza to engage ranchers in the preservation and restoration of open rangelands and our American partner Borderlands Restoration, L3c use CLO’s lands and expertise to teach riparian and wetland restoration to students during its summer school. CLO also worked with the Technical School of Agua Prieta and the Borderlands Earth Care Youth to engage students in outdoor activities on its lands and conducted workshops on grassland and wetland restoration with neighbouring Ejidos.   LEARN MORE 

Art

We believe ecological Restoration is a form of art, with the power to inspire and bring people together.   LEARN MORE
