Conservation at Joint Base Lewis-McChord
Fort Lewis is a key military installation and the most important conservation area in the Puget Trough region. The Nature Conservancy strives to assist Fort Lewis in the conservation of its natural resources within the framework of the Fort’s military training mandate. Fort Lewis and The Nature Conservancy have shared interests because:
- Rare species recovery throughout the region reduces the burden of recovery on any single landowner or site.
- Pest plants harm natural areas and reduce their suitability for military training.
