Support the Natural Areas Conservancy

The Natural Areas Conservancy exists to restore and conserve New York City’s 10,000 acres of forests, marshes, and wetlands on city parklands. Since our founding in 2012, we have worked to bring our science-based management practices to these vibrant and beautiful places that span an area 12 times the size of Central Park and in all five boroughs. Through our research, education, trail maintenance, national network of practitioners, and advocacy, we create growth and catalyze change. Much like the layers of a forest—understory, vine layer, midstory, and overstory—combine to create a healthy community, it’s critical that we sustain and grow our organization at all levels to ensure that our natural areas are thriving and accessible for all New Yorkers.
