A shared vision for regional conservation
Founded in 2012 by a group of citizens who care deeply for the beautiful places in our city, Heartland Conservation Alliance protects natural areas for the enjoyment and benefit of all. Kansas City is home to hundreds of beautiful places. Luckily, it is also home to hundreds of dedicated individuals, organizations, and government agencies protecting, restoring, and caring for our region's natural resources.
By leveraging our ideas and strengths we will have a collective impact on the health of natural communities and make a long-term difference. Heartland Conservation Alliance is an alliance of conservation groups and entities intentionally collaborating toward common goals.
We are a 501(c)3 organization and together with our Board, Steering Council, Partners, and Work Groups, we convene interested stakeholders; pool resources; conserve natural resources for people, wildlife, and ecosystem services; educate and engage landowners, neighborhoods, youth, adults, and policy makers; and connect people to nature. Our Partners are represented on our Steering Council and lend their voices and expertise on our Work Groups.
Heartland Conservation Alliance Partners make a one-year commitment to support our mission to protect important natural areas and resources. They make our work possible with generous financial support and/or in-kind support by serving on one of our work groups or on our Steering Council or by providing professional services, meeting space, or event sponsorship.
