Economies rely on healthy woodlands. Earth’s forests provide millions of jobs, create wildlife habitat, capture carbon, and secure freshwater, but the health of this critical resource is threatened by unsustainable activities.
In the Missouri Ozarks, the Conservancy addresses conservation challenges using strategies that benefit nature and local communities. We are committed to building strong partnerships to improve the health of our forests and our economies.
The Conservancy works with:
100,000: Acres where we work with landowners to secure the Current River watershed
600: Jobs that will be supported by our Pine Knot project with the U.S. Forest Service
> 5,000: Acres of Conservancy forestland with seasonal hunting access
1,500,000: Recreational visitors to the Current River each year
