Who We Are

We are nonconfrontational and nonpartisan. Science guides our work, identifying Earth's most important lands and waters. Employing the latest technology and decades of conservation experience, we work with communities, government agencies, businesses and private property owners to protect and restore key habitats.

We help local communities—in places like the Cumberland Plateau, the Duck and Hatchie Rivers, and the Appalachians—to conserve their natural resources. Our people-oriented, collaborative approach provides practical solutions to complex problems.
