How We Work

The Nature Conservancy in Wyoming secured our first easement in 1978 -- 51 acres on the Skyline Ranch near Jackson. It was cause for celebration. It was also only the beginning. In time, we expanded our toolkit and, with the help of you and our partners, we've protected or restored more than 1 million acres of land and 1,500 miles of rivers and streams in Wyoming.

We work in every corner of the state, guided by science and based on four important pillars:

  • Healthy Waters – This work focuses on goals such as improving water quality and quantity on rivers, restoring and conserving streams and wetlands and implementing innovative and flexible water management tools.
  • Resilient Lands – We’re studying and protecting vital migration routes for wildlife such as mule deer, developing and sharing sustainable agricultural practices and helping inform thoughtful energy development.
  • Securing the Future of Conservation – By participating in engagement efforts such as the Conservancy’s LEAF program – Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future – the Rangeland Institute and our student photo contest, we are guiding those who follow in our footsteps.
  • Organizational Excellence – We are a strong team; including a highly effective board and talented staff. We are dedicated to achieving tangible results, never compromising our values or integrity.
