Organizational Values

The Accokeek Foundation seeks to inspire people to care about the environment by connecting people to the landscape of Piscataway Park. We honor the indigenous people and values that shaped this land. Our interpretation explores historical and cultural connections to today’s trends in agriculture and conservation. We test and demonstrate innovative land management techniques designed to regenerate healthy soils, protect water, and enhance air quality. We engage individuals and communities in action to better protect and restore the natural environment and create a secure, just, and sustainable food system. Our educational programs are designed to prepare people for academic pursuits, employment, and community leadership, and to enhance the health and well being of our region’s residents and environment.

We are invested in creating a transparent, positive culture that values responsibility and integrity and that inspires staff, board, collaborators, and the community to become invested in the Foundation’s work. We believe that our work achieves relevancy through diversity and inclusion. We seek to be a safe and open space for all races, ethnicities, national origins, ages, sexual orientation, gender identity, beliefs, religions, faiths and ideologies, cultures, socioeconomic backgrounds, and levels of physical ability. We support transformational dialogue about historical and cultural realities that have resulted in marginalization. We serve as allies to underserved communities most affected by societal problems, as they lead the efforts to address these challenges. We commit to collaborating for social change, and to discussing ethics, privilege, power, and intention with our partners as we engage in work together.

The Accokeek Foundation conducts background checks in order to insure the safety and well-being of the organization’s staff and visitors. Positions are open until filled. The Accokeek Foundation is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
