To our Members:Stewardship requires an activerelationship with the resources andenvironments under our care. It ismore than preservation and sus-tainable practices, though thoseare important parts of the stew-ard’s work. Awbury offers resources beyondspecimen trees and uplifting vis-tas. There is no one-size-fits-allapproach to managing its multi-faceted landscape. As stewards, wemust understand it as a diverseand interconnected ecosystem, andacknowledge its resilience. All who participate in our main-tenance, restoration, management,and programs are joint stewards of  Awbury. Our neighbors, visitors,volunteers, and partners are anintegral part of our ecosystem.The more diverse and engagedour many parts, the better ourability to weather disturbances andsetbacks, prune weaknesses, andnurture lasting growth.The 2012 Awbury LandscapeStewardship Plan highlighted inthis report reflects our vision for amore responsible, resilient, and in-tegrated landscape and community.
 
We are grateful for your continuedstewardship of this unique urbanresource.Sincerely,Mark Sellers
