Vision, Mission & Values

The Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations envisions Hancock County as a unique and special place endowed with a vibrant quality of living, a strong sense of community pride, and an on-going and compelling story to tell.

Under the governance of the Hancock County Trustees of Public Reservations, Woodlawn offers the people of Hancock County and beyond opportunities for recreation and education on a preserved historic estate, and provides connections to the region’s cultural heritage through programs that entertain and arouse curiosity.

We value the lessons of our region’s history and seek to make them relevant to today’s world.

We value the strong sense of place Woodlawn evokes, and in order to perpetuate that strong feeling of appreciation we are committed to preserving the special character of the property and its holdings.

We value the primacy of our guest’s experience and encourage them to find their own sense of satisfaction and enjoyment.

We value Woodlawn’s optimistic, forward-looking, “can do” culture that enables us to pursue sustainable, relevant and entrepreneurial efforts that will serve diverse audiences for many years.

We value our community relationships, and we continually strive to strengthen and develop them through enhanced programming, community leadership, cooperation and collaboration.

We value the fellowship, respect and sense of purpose we experience from our affiliation with Woodlawn and the Hancock Country Trustees of Public Reservations.

We value prudence and consensus in our policymaking, relying heavily on doing our homework and engaging each other in respectful discussion and deliberation.
