Honoring the Military who Honor Nature

Nature and the Military

When you think about people who work to conserve and protect nature, military personnel and organizations probably aren't at the top of your list.

You can also learn about how the Department of the Defense and The Nature Conservancy are working together to save lands and waters across the United States.
