Since 1984, The Nature Conservancy has worked to protect the unique natural resources of Utah - not FROM people, but FOR people, and all living things.
We work to conserve our waters, care for our public lands, and connect people and nature. Whether acquiring properties for habitat protection, working with partners to conduct large-scale planning and preservation projects, or tackling overarching issues such as climate change, we strive for results that make a difference for the people who rely on our natural world for livelihoods, recreation, and quality of life.
From the shores of Great Salt Lake, to the red rock canyons of the Colorado Plateau, our accomplishments have demonstrated that conservation is not just “nice- to- have” here—it is fundamental to preserving the natural heritage that makes Utah such an incredible place to live, work, and play.
