Places We Protect

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

Since 1965, The Nature Conservancy has been working to conserve lands and waters in Mississippi that have provided a sense of place and connection to our natural heritage for many generations. From the Gulf coast to the Delta, The Conservancy has played a key role in protecting and restoring some of our most iconic landscapes. The list of places we have helped protect and restore include some of the most important areas from a conservation perspective; places with truly unique native plant communities, habitat for the federally endangered species, and rare geologic formations rich with fossils, just to name a few.
With the support of thousands of donors, including individuals, foundations and corporations, we’ve been able to protect over 139,000 acres across the state. Through our work and partnerships, we feel we are making a measurable, lasting difference in Mississippi.
