Long Island Virtual Summer Benefit

Celebrating 65 Years of Protecting Long Island's Lands and Waters

The Nature Conservancy works to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Today, we are addressing the most urgent challenges facing all of nature, humanity included —by  tackling climate change, protecting land and water, providing food and water sustainably, and building healthy communities. Across Long Island, we are working to achieve cleaner waters, restored coastal habitats and fisheries, protected lands and renewable energy. Your support will make a lasting difference.
