Faces of Conservation

Natural Texans

People Are the Solution

The Nature Conservancy believes that no matter what the conservation challenge, people form the core of the solution. Our work is made possible by strong partnerships built on trust, commitment and mutual respect. Our partners include staff, members, volunteers and landowners working to be the best possible stewards of their land. Each has a story worth sharing.

"Texas is neither southern nor western. Texas is Texas."
— Sen. William Arvis "Dollar Bill" Blakely

Every corner of the state, from the high desert of West Texas to the harsh brushlands of the Rio Grande Valley; from the grassy expanses of the High Plains to the stately pines of East Texas' Big Thicket, is dense with incredible conservation stories—tales of success, of opportunity and of the people who make our work possible. Here are some of those stories.
