Our Philosophy

NLCV provides the public with objective, factual information about conservation politics in Nebraska.

NLCV collaborates strategically with appointed and elected officials and partner organizations on rules, regulations and environmental legislation...

NLCV supports conservation champions who will protect our environment for future generations.

Leirion, Roy, and Bennie are dedicated to conserving our community’s natural and financial resources, and we can trust that they will enact common sense solutions to protect our health and safety if elected this May.

Join us for a discussion led by Tony Vargas about the intersection of inequality and environmental protection. 

Our internship program provides a hands-on opportunity to gain in-depth understanding of the field of non-profit management, environmental protection, and Nebraska politics. Interns will learn how to build power through organizing people and gain exposure to the inner-workings of policy development and political engagement.
