Places We Protect


Use this map or browse the list below to explore our preserves and places we protect in Louisiana.

Welcome to Louisiana!

The Nature Conservancy's mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends, and we are working in Louisiana to do just that.  Since 1951, The Nature Conservancy has worked with communities around the world to protect and restore these resources.  Your support for The Nature Conservancy in Louisiana makes our conservation work possible in this great state, and together we are making a difference for the future.

We invite you to visit our preserves and see first-hand the work that we are doing throughout Louisiana, from longleaf pine forests to oyster reefs, from the Mississippi Delta to the Gulf of Mexico. Your support has made all of this possible, and for that we thank you.
