Support Us

We’ve demonstrated our passion for the American landscape by protecting more than 7 million acres across all 50 states. Whether we’re linking a forest back together in California or planning for recreational parks and greenspace in some of America’s largest cities, no problem is too complicated, no project too big.

At The Conservation Fund, we realize the value of nature, and we’re motivated by the bounty it has to offer. If we lose these precious lands and waters, we lose more than just trees and streams. We lose the character of communities, the jobs that depend on them and the wildlife that requires them.

We’re protecting special places that wildlife need for shelter, food and safe migration, along with open spaces that people need, too—parks to play in, trails to hike on, historic sites to learn about, and more.

We’re preserving the integrity of landscapes, like stretches of Redwood forests in California and beautiful views along the Appalachian Trail. We also roll up our sleeves to find smart conservation solutions, like enhancing technologies to produce healthy fish and loans to expand family farms.

Protecting the open space around us is imperative, and keeping it healthy is a necessity. We help towns, cities and even states strategically plan for future growth. With your generous support today, you give us the opportunity to preserve the beauty of nature in some of America’s favorite places.
