Rethinking the Issues

Bold Bison brings our deep experience in nonprofits and rich sector knowledge to help transform the way organizations think and communicate about their work.

Changing the Face of Lake County

In 2021, Brushwood Center at Ryerson Woods reshaped their narrative to better acknowledge their core values: centering community partnerships, amplifying voices of environmental justices, and prioritizing frontline communities in their work.

A New Future for Local Food

In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Chicago Region Food System Fund formed quickly to address hunger and reprioritize a more equitable future for the regional food system.

Messing With Texas

Bold Bison is currently engaged in Texas to help think through strategies that land trusts can deploy to build a greater case of support by making a stronger case for conservation across the state.
