From the Director
This year I am extremely excited to announce the launch of an ambitious, five-year capital campaign for The Nature Conservancy’s Maryland/DC chapter.
Our “Change is Here” campaign is a focused effort to leverage our conservation and policy work to make as big of a contribution as possible toward the global effort to tackle climate change.
For more than 65 years The Nature Conservancy has been protecting some of the most iconic and ecologically significant lands and waters in the world, including more than 75,000 acres here in Maryland. Today, climate change threatens to erode many of the important conservation gains that we have made together over the decades.
Make no mistake; with more than 7,000 miles of Atlantic and Chesapeake coastline in Maryland, and millions of residents living in the warming urban centers of the District of Columbia and Baltimore, we are already feeling the impacts of climate change.
But nature can help.
There is a growing body of peer-reviewed scientific evidence, including studies led by The Nature Conservancy, that have quantified the benefits of harnessing nature to tackle climate change and provide benefits to people and nature.
Our chapter is on the front lines of this fight. We work on the ground to deliver large-scale, science-based conservation projects that will help people and nature adapt to a changing climate. And we work with lawmakers and industry to accelerate renewable energy deployment to mitigate the human causes of climate change. We do this work in concert with the entire organization so that we are all pushing in the same direction, driving the local and global change that we want to see in the world.
Together with supporters like you, we will ensure that our legacy is one of action. Join us to be part of the greatest success story in the history of the planet.
