Your nature organization is unique.

From board issues, to special events, to venomous snakes on your trails, we understand. Our program extends beyond coverage by offering a safety path to follow, including leadership trainings, staff continuing education, and safety resources. We help you protect nature, people, your property, your finances and your reputation.

Some of the typical insurances we recommend.

  • Directors & Officers: Your organization and individual board members can be sued for the decisions you make.
  • Employment Practices: If you have employees, volunteers, vendors, or participants this coverage provides protection from lawsuits regarding harassment, discrimination, negligent hiring & firing, and more.
  • Property & Inland Marine: In the event of fires, windstorms, and more, this coverage provides protection for your buildings, contents, exhibits and equipment.
  • Liability: Your programs, premises, the things that you do, and the people you serve.
  • Auto: To protect you when you own vehicles, rent vehicles, or have staff or volunteers that drive vehicles on your behalf.
  • Workers Compensation: Required coverage for workplace injuries causing medical expenses and lost wages.
  • Umbrella Excess Liability: Additional liability protection to increase coverage limits over liability, auto and more.
  • Watercraft: To protect your hull, equipment, and crew.
