Earth Sanctuary combines exemplary ecology with art and spirit to create a sanctuary for birds and wildlife and a peaceful place for personal renewal and spiritual connection.
At his 72-acre preserve, Pettis has undertaken possibly the largest
ecological restoration project ever funded by an individual. Guided by
a panel of experts, in 2001 he launched a 500-year plan for returning
the site to old-growth forest not only teeming with native species of
plants, bird and animals, but also reverberating with spiritual power
from installations of humongous rock megaliths.
It is not enough to understand the natural world. The point is to
defend and preserve it.
