The Nature Conservancy Opens New Office in West Palm Beach, Increasing Support of Conservation Initiatives.
West Palm Beach, Florida | October 12, 2017
The Nature Conservancy has just opened an office in West Palm Beach to further support the organization’s work in south Florida and throughout the state. The new office is home to staff on the science and planning, strategy and policy, marketing, and government relations teams.
“To achieve our ambitious conservation goals, we continue to locate our teams in areas where they may best address environmental issues and collaborate with local, state, and federal agencies,” said Temperince Morgan, executive director, The Nature Conservancy in Florida. “We’re increasing our staff in this vibrant city along our coast.”
The Conservancy’s work includes efforts to protect land and water, tackle climate change, provide food and water sustainably, build healthy cities, and connect people and nature. In South Florida, the organization continues to focus on coastal resilience and reducing risk through natural systems, coral reef management, greener and more functional urban spaces, and engaging and informing key audiences such as supporters and legislators to help ensure a healthy future.
To bring nature into the new office, a beautiful, hand-crafted Conservancy sign has been placed near the suite door. The sign was created by the Conservancy’s central Florida conservation land manager Adam Peterson, from an eastern red cedar tree which had fallen in Babson Park during the 2004 hurricane season and was salvaged for future use. The new office space is located in a LEED Silver building.
The Conservancy has a team of 72 people dedicated to Florida efforts who are based across the state, including offices in Big Pine Key, Miami, Orlando, and Tallahassee, as well as at the organization’s field offices at Apalachicola Bluffs and Ravines Preserve in Bristol, Tiger Creek Preserve in Babson Park, Disney Wilderness Preserve in Kissimmee, and Blowing Rocks Preserve in Jupiter.
