River restorations, rain gardens, dunes and more ways we can use mother nature to help reduce flood risk.

As man-made structures replace nature, there is less nature to absorb water when flooding occurs. The Nature Conservancy is a key partner behind a new effort to promote the use of nature-based solutions to help reduce the risk of floods. By investing in nature, other benefits for communities, like improved water quality and enhanced recreational opportunities and wildlife habitat, also result.

Naturally Resilient Communities highlights nature-based solutions that communities can employ to reduce flooding and realize other benefits. This partnership features a suite of case studies that showcase real, on-the-ground success stories.
