Why The Nature Conservancy?
The Nature Conservancy’s Kentucky Chapter brings the following strengths to every project:
We have a staff presence and strong connections in communities throughout Kentucky – from the Mississippi River bottomlands and the Green River watershed, to the Kentucky River Palisades and the Cumberland Mountains, and even in downtown Louisville.
We join colleagues in every state and over 40 countries to leverage our conservation work in Kentucky to benefit larger natural systems that reach beyond our borders, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Central Appalachian Mountains.
We draw expertise and advice from our network of more than 600 Nature Conservancy scientists to ensure that our actions are based on sound science and tested on-the-ground techniques.
We work with all stakeholders to develop thoughtful, balanced, and lasting solutions to conservation challenges.
We work collaboratively with communities, companies, government agencies, and other non-profit organizations to expand our collective impact.
We are guided by a dedicated staff, loyal members, and our Kentucky Board of Trustees representing business, academic, government, and non-profit sector experience.
