To conserve the lands and waters upon which all life depends.


Founded in 1951, The Nature Conservancy works in more than 70 countries and all 50 states. We create innovative, pragmatic, on-the-ground solutions to the world’s toughest challenges, so nature and people can thrive together. To achieve a sustainable future, TNC collaborates with local communities, governments, and the private sector to address the most pressing issues of our time: climate change and the loss of biodiversity. In Michigan, these global priorities drive us to focus locally. We work with agriculture in the Saginaw Valley to help farmers use conservation on their farms, helping water quality and their bottom line. We work with conservation partners to restore and revitalize our native fisheries. We work with landowners in Michigan’s forests to make those forests as healthy and climate resilient as possible. And, we work with local communities in Detroit, helping provide resources for green stormwater infrastructure, all for the benefit of both people and nature.



When you make a tax-deductible donation to The Nature Conservancy, you’re supporting the most effective solutions to the environment’s most pressing challenges. As the largest environmental nonprofit, The Nature Conservancy is working to advance conservation in all 50 states and U.S. territories and in 70 countries around the world. That’s why your contribution is so much more than charity; it’s an investment in the future of our planet.
