The Nature Conservancy's Adopt an Acre Program

Manuel Marquez, MD, works as a tour director for Insight Vacations by Destination America, where he provides guided motor coach tours throughout the country. With many tours of national parks and other natural sites under his belt, Manuel Marquez, MD, is passionate about nature and donates charitably to the Nature Conservancy.

There are multiple ways to support the Nature Conservancy, which strives to address the world’s most pressing environmental threats. 

The Nature Conservancy’s Adopt an Acre program allows you to symbolically adopt an acre of land in a key conservation area. Your donation contributes to the Nature Conservancy’s environmental and conservation efforts in the area you choose. For example, adopting an acre in the Northern Rockies area helps protect the habitat for local animals like grizzly bears, wolverines, and the Canadian lynx. 

The Nature Conservancy offers five locations across the country from which you can adopt an acre. These areas include the Northern Rockies, the Central Appalachians, the Great Planes, the Gulf Coast, and the Northern Sierra. Upon symbolically adopting an acre, you will receive an adoption kit that includes a certificate, photos, and information on your adopted location.
