The Nature Conservancy

The Nature Conservancy is the leading conservation organization working to protect the most ecologically important lands and waters around the world for nature and people.

Their work toward clean air, clean water, livable communities, healthy ecosystems, viable natural resource-based industries, abundant open space and recreational opportunities, and managing natural resources on a watershed-wide basis is performed in a spirit of open and effective government.

The Rhode Island chapter has succeeded in preserving areas in Providence County, East Bay, Washington (South) County, and Block Island.

Head Waters of the Wood River

The Rhode Island chapter cooperated with the West Greenwich Land Trust and Rhode Island's Department of Environmental Management to preserve this part of the largest expanse of continuous forest between Boston and New York. As a result, the land was spared from residential development.

Lime Rock Preserve

Lime Rock's unique and abundant plant life drew notable botanists for the last 100 years. Only 10 minutes from downtown Providence, the preserve forms an oasis of tranquility and an important refuge for wildlife in an area that is heavily impacted by development.

The preserve was created in 1986, thanks to landowners Dorothy and Raymond Houghton, the Plante Family and the Wilbur Family. The Conklin Limestone Company donated mineral rights.

Generous support from The Champlin Foundations and numerous individual donors made the protection of Lime Rock a success.
