*The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is the leading conservation organization working in all 50 states and more than 70 countries to protect ecologically important lands and waters for nature and people. TNC’s mission is to preserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.  Since its founding in 1951, we have built a tremendous record of success protecting more than 119 million acres of land and thousands of miles of rivers worldwide, and now operate more than 100 marine conservation projects globally. 

The Nature Conservancy has been part of South Carolina’s conservation tradition for 50 years, since its first project in 1969 established the Beidler Forest Sanctuary in partnership with the National Audubon Society.  Since then, TNC has successfully preserved more than 370,000 acres across the state.  In addition to land protection, the South Carolina chapter has programs in river conservation, prescribed fire, land management, invasive species control, and coastal conservation. We provide a multitude of services that protect and restore nature, promote the sustainable use of nature, and expand support for nature, all of which have major implications for people and communities. Visit www.nature.org/sc50  to learn more!
