White Eagle Memorial Preserve grew from deep love for the Earth, and for the Ekone land of the Upper Rock Creek Watershed. A certified Conservation Burial Ground and part of Sacred Earth Foundation’s land trust, our purpose includes protection and stewardship of this watershed.se_land_current

White Eagle exists within a larger land conservation effort – 20 acres within the 1060 acres currently held in trust by Sacred Earth Foundation. We protect land from adverse impacts, and actively steward important habitat and waterways in this arid landscape. And we share the land with hundreds of children and adults each year, who find solace, inspiration, and deep learning here.se_land_w-proposed-acquisitions

Legacy gifts, in the memory of a loved one, and planned gifts designated during estate planning, are a powerful way to support the conservation values of White Eagle and Sacred Earth Foundation. For more information about the Conservation Fund and our immediate priorities, including Aspen Grove and Rainbow Springs sites, visit the Conservation Fund page on Ekone’s website.

All gifts of $1000 and above will be recognized on our Conservation Funders ‘Gratitude Trail, a permanent installation at the White Eagle entryway gate.
