Texas is at a crossroads with a rapidly growing population and extremities in climate, challenging TNC to balance the needs of both nature and people.

With these two evolving spheres of people and climate, managing freshwater is at the forefront of TNC’s strategy in Texas. Specifically, our freshwater conservation approach is composed of three main strategy areas: Water Management and Policy, Market-Based Solutions, and Conservation of Healthy Lands and Waters.
