The health of our natural places, people, and economy are deeply intertwined—and GSBA member The Nature Conservancy in Washington embodies these values.
The Nature Conservancy is guided by science to solve the most pressing conservation issues and unleash the power of nature to prepare Washington’s people and urban, rural, and wild lands for the challenges of a changing climate.
The Nature Conservancy is part of the world’s largest conservation organization, working in more than 70 countries and with nearly 60 years of history in Washington with a mission to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.
In Washington we are restoring forests, rivers, shorelines and marine waters, and bringing green infrastructure into cities to clean air and reduce pollution from urban runoff. The Conservancy’s work extends around the globe as shares successes and learns lessons from the Conservancy's global practice.
Two of the Nature Conservancy's core values are: respect for people, communities, and cultures: and commitment to diversity.
To create a world where people and nature both thrive, we need creativity, innovation and diversity of thought.
The Conservancy believes that we need all people bringing their ideas in a safe and inclusive environment. Success depends on deep and lasting relationships with diverse communities across our state and around the world.
We’re proud to have The Nature Conservancy of Washington as a GSBA member.
