The mission of The Nature Conservancy is to protect the land and water on which all life depends, and for nearly three decades, we’ve been working across the 28-million-acre Greater Yellowstone ecosystem to do just that.
Protecting Clean Water
The Greater Yellowstone is the source of seven major rivers and an average of 4 trillion gallons of freshwater, which helps “water the West” so that people and nature thrive.
Places We Protect
