The Nantucket Conservation Associates is a group of dedicated young adult volunteers, aged 21-40, who further the Foundation’s mission of preserving and protecting the island’s open spaces and natural habitats. The Associates strive to encourage an appreciation of Nantucket’s fragile environment by providing educational opportunities for children, increasing participation in Foundation activities by young families, and sponsoring fund raising events.
