About the Center for Humans and Nature

Exploring our relationships and responsibilities to nature.

Our work provides in-depth and diverse perspectives about what it means to be human in an interconnected world.

The Center for Humans and Nature is a 501c3 nonprofit organization, publisher, forum, and place to explore, connect, and nurture our understandings of and responsibilities to the natural world. We share ideas that foster curiosity, build community, and inspire action.

The Center in Libertyville, IL is a workspace for Chicago-based staff, a retreat center for the Center’s gatherings of thought-leaders, a laboratory in which to practice land-relationship ideas shared by Center contributors, and (one day soon) a welcoming space for periodic public events.
