The Challenge for Utah
The natural wonder of the American West is still alive in Utah. Spectacular lands and waters, part of our unique heritage, remain key elements of the lifestyle we treasure. These resources support communities, sustain jobs and provide millions of people with recreation opportunities and an exceptional quality of life. But rapid change continues to ripple across the West, and Utah is no exception. Our natural world is being altered at rates that outpace conservation efforts.
A Window of Opportunity
We can still rise as a model for the West: a place where quality of life, a growing economy and vibrant natural resources are all valued and sustained. A place where people connect to nature, steward its assets and benefit from its health. The Nature Conservancy has worked for nearly 30 years to save the special lands and waters that Utahns value. Now we have launched a new vision for conservation—a campaign not just to save acres and species, but to improve the way we relate to our natural world.
The Nature of Utah Campaign
An historic effort to restore Utah's most unique and threatened regions, The Nature of Utah Campaign brings together partners, communities and the public in ways that will shape the future of entire watersheds, improve the health of our vast public lands and benefit millions of people who rely on and enjoy our great outdoors. Our projects fall under three initiatives: Conserving Our Waters, Caring for Our Public Lands, and Connecting People & Nature.
