I began volunteering for this organization when I learned, much to my surprise, that there was a preserve only a few miles from my back door. I was immediately smitten and, as I visited each preserve in northeast Ohio in turn, became even more impressed. More than 10 years and almost 5000 volunteer hours have passed. I'm the volunteer crew chief at my local preserve and still can't get enough! The more we do, the more beautiful the preserves become!

The Nature Conservancy is a top notch organization that hes been engineering innovative methods and solutions for protecting natural areas all over the planet for decades. I have been a member and supporter and online activist for the Conservancy for decades as well, and am proud to have volunteered in Florida at the Wilderness preserve. The Conservancy has been a leader in conservation and been the Gold Standard that many other environmental organizations strive to replicate.

I have been a member and supporter of The Nature Conservancy for over 25 years, and have had the privilege of volunteering at one of their preserves. The Conservancy has grown and adapted it's mission as times and conservation ideas have changed and evolved. The sheer scope of the national and worldwide conservation initiatives that the Conservancy has instituted and supported is nothing short of astounding. On the list of the conservacy's successes is a roster of earthly places simple and the sublime. I have never seen an organization do more to preserve nature and biodiversity on our planet.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Rehabilitating natural areas in Florida to prtect native flora and fauna, wetlands and water quality.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Like to see it partner with many more environmental organizations than it already does.

Imagine standing in the middle of an 1100 acre mounded prairie. It's February. There's a little snow on the ground and it's drizzling. You're dressed for it and only a little cold. Last year's wildflowers are senescent, but wild strawberries are visible, and the evergreen of scotch broom stands out. You're with about a dozen like-minded friends attacking the broom with weed wrenches. There's a group of students from the local college out shooting a documentary, asking questions like, "Why are you out here?" Because I remember the place when it was old-growth broom taller than me. The Nature Conservancy got me connected with this place and the South Puget Sound prairies. It is the persistence of volunteers, fueled by the Conservancy's volunteer organisation, that has made this place a candidate for re-introduction of captive-raised endangered butterflies. That's big. That's why I'm out there.

In Texas, amazing what they do. Think about how much this organization does everywhere. Of course they need professionals to run it. 120 million acres it says on their web site. That's a lot to take care of. Glad they do pay staff well. That way it really will be in good shape.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

after the oil spill by volunteering in the Gulf.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make sure less places need protecting. Thankfully they're there.
