Come to a WakeNature Preserve Partnership Meeting
WakeNature meetings are open to anyone that has an interest in Wake County’s natural resources. We invite you to attend our meeting and participate at the level you feel comfortable.
We meet on the first Thursday of most months. To find out when our next meeting is please visit our meeting page.
Become a WakeNature Partner
We’d love to have your organization join our partnership, if you manage land for conservation in Wake County. Our long-term goal is to include all municipal, non-profit, and private conservation land management agencies. Please check out our wiki to learn more about our partnership and to see a list of other members.
And contact us if you’d like to learn more.
