Science Drives Our Work

Science plays a leading role in The Nature Conservancy’s work. It helps inform effective strategies and measures our success. All of our scientific research helps guide us so that we can better protect our lands and waters.

In Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota, the Conservancy’s science team is working to protect our grasslands, forests, wetlands, lakes, rivers and streams for nature and people.

Our researchers are looking at everything from the effects of grazing and fire on prairies to how climate change will transform our northern forests. We’re also studying how conservation can help mitigate flooding and improve water quality.
