Founded in 1999, the Raleigh Springs Conservancy is a 501(c)3 focusing its efforts on the Raleigh community of Memphis, TN. It has been formed to hold and protect land of conservation value to the community, to promote the conservation and protection of natural and cultural resources, to education the public as to the benefits of natural resource protection, and to work with the public, civic organizations, other conservation organizations and government in efforts to protect the community's natural and cultural resources.

The eight acres owned by The Conservancy has never been used for industrial uses, and has never been developed. This land has been left untouched and preserved, and The Conservancy hopes to add to it in the future.
