"As a species, we really have only one asset. We might think it's our house or some material possession, but it's really the land that we live on, this planet that supports us."
     - Lee McFadyen, organic farmer

Across Canada, unchecked development, farming and mining threaten to destroy landscapes that have taken eons to evolve. In British Columbia, private landowners hold the greatest potential for preserving critical wildlife habitat. Stewards of the Land takes a gentle journey across the province, revealing how several of these unsung heroes are sharing their land with the plants and animals that also call it home.

Meet a common-sense cattle rancher, a farsighted organic farmer, a 102-year-old guardian of a Garry Oak meadow, and a giant mining company willing to forego windfall profits. What motivates them to go the extra mile for the acreages they watch over? From rebuilding streamside habitat to placing conservation covenants on crucial ecosystems, their personal contributions add up to a healthier future for biological diversity. Stewards of the Land is an inspiration for landowners to make their land a better place for all living things.
