The Transformative Work of

The Nature Conservancy's mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends.  It envisions a world where the diversity of life thrives, and people act to conserve nature for its own sake and its ability to fulfill our needs and enrich our lives.   

Join us Tuesday, February 9th 

where Mauricia M.M. Baca, State Director of The Nature Conservancy and IWF member, will share her personal journey to TNC and TNC's focus on resilience for the future of our state and our world. 

Mauricia's first outdoor experiences were with her dad, who hiked with her on his back in the mountains of Mexico. Her love of the outdoors also developed while exploring Central Park as a child. Now serving as the State Director for the Nevada Chapter of The Nature Conservancy, Mauricia has almost 30 years of experience working across a wide range of environmental issues. 

She became Executive Director of Get Outdoors Nevada (then Outside Las Vegas Foundation) in January 2010. Mauricia served as a trial attorney for the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) from 2000 through 2004 in the Wildlife and Marine Resources Section of the Environment and Natural Resources Division.  She left the DOJ to work with The Nature Conservancy for in their Nevada Chapter (from 2005 to 2010), beginning as the Manager for the Truckee River Project and then leading the southern Nevada office in Las Vegas.

Mauricia's nonprofit and community outreach experience includes working in New York City as the city-wide community organizer for the New York Public Interest Research Group’s Straphanger’s Campaign, a mass transit advocacy organization.  She serves as Chair on the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument Advisory Council, and as a member on the Transportation Resource Advisory Committee for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada, and the City of Henderson's Park and Recreation Board. In June 2020, she was appointed to serve as a member of the State of Nevada's Advisory Board on Outdoor Recreation

Mauricia has served on the Transportation Task Force for Southern Nevada Strong, Vice-Chair for the Las Vegas Healthy Communities Coalition Natural & Built Environment Committee, and the Bureau of Land Management's Mojave-southern Great Basin Resource Advisory Committee.
