Healthy lands and waters are essential for our state — and the key to a resilient future for people and nature. As Texas grows and prospers, protecting our natural resources will be critical for sustaining the health and wealth of our state.
The Nature Conservancy (TNC) has been working with partners and supporters to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends since 1964 in Texas. For 60 years, TNC has worked collaboratively across the state to ensure that Texas’ treasured landscapes, rivers, wildlife, and ways of life don’t fade into lore and legend.
This year, TNC celebrates a momentous milestone: The protection of 1 million acres in Texas — and in a state where 95% of land is privately owned, that’s a big deal.
