Rivers and Lakes

Explore Solutions in Action

The Conservancy uses science to help make essential natural places healthy and keep them healthy. We help bring together communities, farmers, ranchers, governments and businesses to find better ways to use rivers and lakes for drinking water, producing food, generating energy and more. Over the past 60 years we have achieved tangible results in hundreds of freshwater projects, helping preserve nature and the benefits it provides to people.
