Our Purpose

The mission of the B.W. Wells Association is to educate the public about B. W. Wells, North Carolina’s first plant ecologist, and promote his conservation ethics. The Association will achieve its mission primarily by assisting the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to preserve, restore and interpret the unique cultural and natural resources at Rockcliff Farm, the site of Wells’ retirement.

The B.W. Wells Association is the leading resource for educating the public about B.W. Wells and his philosophy of “man living in harmony with nature.” The Association is playing a major role in restoring Rockcliff Farm so that it becomes a living legacy of the environmental ethics of B.W. Wells and a source of inspiration to future conservationists.
