Central Appalachians

Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee

We are for a future in which the Central Appalachians’ essential forests and rivers, and premier natural diversity are protected in an enduring mountain landscape that sustains nature, people, and the rich cultural heritage of the Appalachians.

The Nature Conservancy’s Central Appalachians program has identified two priority areas crucial to protecting this landscape:

  • Smart resource development
  • Protected and restored habitats on public lands

Explore our latest news and features to learn more about these priorities and how we work.
