The Nature Conservancy of Texas

The Nature Conservancy of Texas (TNC) preserves the plants, animals and natural communities that represent the diversity of life on Earth by protecting the lands and waters they need to survive.  Since 1964, TNC has been working in Texas and now owns more than 30 Texas nature preserves and conservation properties and assists private landowners to conserve their land through more than 100 voluntary land-preservation agreements. With public and private partners, TNC has protected 750,000 acres in the state.
