 Moving Conservation Forward on Many Fronts

The Nature Conservancy is an active partner in conserving our imperiled sagebrush sea with better science, collaboration and policy. On this page you can learn about our strategies, recent projects and available resources.

With Precision RestorationTNC is fostering a multi-organizational effort to improve restoration outcomes by developing novel seed technologies. Better restoration protects native plant communities from invasion and leads to less frequent, less destructive wildfires. 

As collaboratorsTNC engages scientists, ranchers, agencies, landowners and other stakeholders to improve land management practices, restore native sagebrush habitat, and support sustainable economic development. Collective action on shared priorities is the most efficient and enduring pathway to meeting our goals.

Finally, we're supporting the Oregon Sage-grouse Action Plan to develop a science-driven blueprint for southeastern Oregon, focusing policy and conservation investments on the most important places and minimizing the impacts of development on wildlife habitats.
