Protecting the Show-Me State

Together with our members and partners, The Nature Conservancy has protected almost 150,000 acres of Missouri's natural treasures.

Welcome to Missouri!

As Missourians, we love hiking through a prairie blanketed with vibrant wildflowers, floating down a clear, spring-fed stream, or camping in an Ozark forest. These lands and waters are a part of our natural heritage, and they provide us with food, water, energy, shelter, and a place to play.

Established almost 60 years ago, The Nature Conservancy works to protect our state's natural treasures. One of Missouri's leading conservation organizations, we owe our success to a proven scientific approach and the support of committed members and partners.

The stories below highlight how we're working to protect nature, transform the way we use the Earth's resources, and inspire action - today, and in the future.
