No matter what the conservation challenge, people form the core of the solution. Our staff is working to make a difference for the people, lands, and waters of Maryland and Washington, D.C. Meet some of the experts who help us protect nature and preserve life.
Our Conservation Experts
"The work I do at The Nature Conservancy allows me to merge what I’ve learned over 25 years in the conservation field with my passion for nature and desire to make a difference in this world.” See Elizabeth's bio
"I feel fortunate to wake up every day and know we’re making a difference in this watershed where I grew up and that I dearly love.” See Mark's bio
"Sometimes I get satisfaction very quickly from my work, like with prescribed burns—the native species will come back fast. But a lot of projects, like tree planting, will take years." See Deborah's bio
“My whole view on conservation has evolved. It’s not what I get from it personally so much now as what I hope my kids and my grandkids will get out of it." See Joe's bio
"There’s nothing more interesting to me than the way that human beings, both as individuals and as part of a community interact with our natural world." See Donnelle's bio
"I like the flexibility that we have to experiment with different approaches to forest management without having to jump through a lot of bureaucratic hoops." See David's bio
