Our public lands are America’s crown jewels — from the jaw-dropping mountain peaks to the wild and pristine rivers to the towering forests — there’s beauty in all corners of the country.

But our nation’s public lands are under threat like never before. With the dual threats of the climate emergency and unchecked development ripping through habitat, we must act with unprecedented urgency to save treasured lands and waters.

With National Public Lands Day tomorrow, I’m hoping I can count on you step up for nature now. You can help with a gift that will go 2x as far and we’ll add it to our Matching Gift Fund — used to match the gifts of other supporters.

For decades, The Nature Conservancy has helped directly protect some of the most recognizable and iconic places across the country like Badlands National Park, Glacier National Park and Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve.

Your support has helped conserve the natural places you cherish in your own backyard and in vital places across the country. Like in Pennsylvania, where we’ve helped secure more than 15,000 acres of land for public use, including the critical Kittatinny Ridge landscape. It’s a vital link in a chain of unbroken forested mountains and an important migration corridor for hawks and eagles.

This is the kind of tangible conservation work you make possible as a Nature Conservancy member. Protecting access to public land for all is only possible with support from generous people like you. With threats to lands and waters increasing, it’s urgent we ramp up our efforts to safeguard nature now.

Will you give now to multiply your impact for nature?

Jeff, we can’t protect these incredible natural places alone. We’re committed to honoring and elevating all voices in conservation, including Indigenous communities who are the original stewards of our lands and waters.

Together, we can help conserve our nation’s public lands and waters that sustain us all.

I hope you’ll consider making a gift now that will go twice as far.

Thank you for your support that makes our important work together possible.

With gratitude,

Dave Strauss
