About this grant

The Nature Conservancy, an international conservation organization, has placed a priority on protecting the freshwater resources of the southeastern United States. In recent years, the conservancy has made significant conservation progress at many freshwater sites and has built a network of internal experts and external partners engaged in freshwater conservation activities throughout the region. With continued Mott support, the conservancy’s Southern U.S. Conservation Region will provide technical assistance to staff working at well-established conservation projects throughout the region, initiate new conservation projects at two-to-four freshwater sites, and expand its network of experts and partners.
