• What We do

    Stewardship Institute

The Stewardship Institute (formerly the Conservation Study Institute) is a collaborative for change, from the way it is organized, to how it works. The origin of the Institute is rooted in the idea that the National Park Service is an organization of great public purpose and that its people — charged with the stewardship of some of America's greatest treasures — need to be supported, challenged, and provided opportunities for renewal.

At the Stewardship Institute, we help National Park Service leaders move the organization in new directions. Our approach is collaborative, convening people of diverse training and experience, stewarding the National Park Service into the 21st century.
