Self-Appointed Land Guardianship

Healing Through Nature offers different forms of Community Service, including self-appointed guardianship of specific Lands.

I. Healing Through Nature does volunteer clean-up of discarded items and garbage, that has been unethically dumped or tossed, or has floated onto the beach during the high-tide -- which poses a threat to the Land or wildlife, on specific lands.

II. Healing Through Nature also assists in land and trail-observation of private forest, and notifies of poaching or trespassing, to assist the land-owner in protection and maintenance of their trails and land.

Healing Through Nature, as a spiritual intermediary with the Land, engages in Service, in reciprocal relationship, in acknowledgement of the Elemental Ethics of peace, love, and healing.
