Using science to guide our work, The Nature Conservancy has helped protect more than 71,000 acres of prairies, rivers, lakes and wetlands in South Dakota.
Focused on Grasslands
Prairies are often overlooked and unappreciated. But the Conservancy is working in North Dakota and elsewhere to change that perception and to protect more of the most endangered, threatened habitat type on Earth.
The Nature Conservancy worked with the U.S. Forest Service and ranchers to consolidate public and private lands for everyone's benefit.
See our Natural Events Calendar for a monthly snapshot of the plants and wildlife found at Conservancy preserves across South Dakota.
