 KATHLEEN TURNER, ALEC BALDWIN TAPE NATURE CONSERVANCY
 PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
 WASHINGTON, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Award-winning actors Kathleen Turner and Alec Baldwin have donated their time to videotape public service announcements for The Nature Conservancy. Ms. Turner and Mr. Baldwin became active members of The Nature Conservancy through the organization's conservation work on Long Island, where both actors have homes.
 The public service announcements, one featuring Ms. Turner's well- known voice and the other featuring Mr. Baldwin on location at the Conservancy's Atlantic Double Dune Preserve on Long Island, will be released for broadcast in October. Ms. Turner's spot focuses on the value of coastal dunes for both people and wildlife, and Mr. Baldwin's announcement highlights the Conservancy's pragmatic, non-confrontational approach to habitat conservation.
 The announcements were made possible through a grant from Christian Dior Perfumes to support The Nature Conservancy's dune conservation efforts. The first year's donation will be dedicated to three projects: Long Island's Atlantic Double Dunes Preserve in Amagansett, N.Y., the Lanphere-Christensen Dunes Preserve located along the northern California coast near Eureka and the Guadalupe-Nipomo Dunes Preserve north of Santa Barbara. The three-year, $350,000 donation is Christian Dior's contribution to the preservation of the pure and natural coastal environment that inspired its newest fragrance, Dune, which debuts in the U.S. in October.
 The PSAs also will be shown continuously in as many as 500 department stores around the country this fall to raise awareness of the need for conservation of coastal natural areas.
