We may not work on-the-ground in New York City's five boroughs, but that doesn't mean you can't get a taste of the great outdoors! Plenty of our preserves are located within a two-hour journey from mid-town Manhattan.
The Nature Conservancy's long history in the United States began right here in New York. Mianus River Gorge, 740 acres of wild hemlock stands, lush fern gullies, and rushing river marks the Conservancy's first land transaction in 1954. Since then, we have protected over 600,000 acres in New York, and more than 15 million in the United States alone.
