Turtle Island Preserve is a 1,000-acre nature preserve owned by Conway, located eight miles outside of Boone, North Carolina. The preserve is used mainly as an educational facility, where participants learn about the governing laws of nature. Conway has a hands-on approach at the facility, teaching and acting as tour guide. As a master horseman, Conway offers participants the opportunity to learn about horses and other animals on the preserve.

At the facility, participants may learn how to chop wood, live off the land, and learn the art of traditional crafts such as woodworking, blacksmithing, spinning, pottery, stonework, basket weaving, and more. Participants also learned about flora and fauna, leadership skills, teamwork, and how to enjoy life without computers and television.
