Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 10,000 members.

Be sure to read up on how to navigate the site HERE. This will help you get the most out of the site.
