Creating vibrant communities through rural economic development and natural resource conservation.
How Can Pathfinders Help You?

Pathfinders projects and programs are tied to rural economic development and/or natural resource conservation. Our current activities relate to local food, small business development, abandoned strip mine land reclamation, watershed protection, trail formation and tourism development.
