To be fair, it is the Nature Conservancy, not the Nature Preservancy. Sustainable logging is perfectly compatible with conservation (and in fact, when done properly, it can be a super useful tool towards facilitating healthy forests).

Absolutely right. I have no problem with that part of their land management. Just noting that it's a widely held misconception that TNC is in fact a "preservancy." And they carefully make no effort to dissuade folks from that on their website, which is basically a big fund raising ad with pretty pictures and very little information.

The only beef I have with them is that they exclude some recreational activities, like bicycles and climbing, without a good rationale. They would reach a broader level of support with the younger recreational community if they were open to additional activities, with appropriate controls, on their lands.
