Western working lands feed, water and fuel the nation while sustaining up to 80 percent of the region’s wildlife species. These lands, their wildlife, and those who make their living from them face increasing pressures.
While the original conservation movement has focused primarily on legal protections for land and species, the next era of conservation must shape economic conditions and policies that actively foster healthy landscapes, rural livelihoods and wildlife.
Join us to help improve the stewardship and economics of working landscapes, increase mutual understanding among stakeholders and identify areas of agreement. Come engage in helping us forge a productive path forward.
