Minnesota Environmental Issues Oral History Project: Interview with Margaret Kohring
BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Kohring is from Michigan and is a fourth generation female botanist. As a teenager, she became involved on her own in preserving a wetlands area from overdevelopment by Amtrak. She eventually enlisted The Nature Conservancy's help in this project, and the wetlands was saved.

In 1983, she was named executive director. SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: Her background; The Nature Conservancy programs; stewardship program; funding; affiliation with other conservation groups; lobbying efforts; The Nature Conservancy administrative structure; The Nature Conservancy's "master list" of conservation projects; its techniques of non confrontation; its affiliation with business; its goals; future of The Nature Conservancy, such as projects to protect migratory bird habitats in South America.
