Habitat & Conservation  |  05/21/2020



We’re Continuing to Fight for the Upland Landscapes and Experiences that Unite Us – Even When We Can’t Be Together

Whether it’s social distancing while restoring habitat and planting native seed, virtually connecting with farmers, ranchers, and landowners to help them create high quality habitat on their lands, or continuing to advocate for policies that benefit habitat, public access, and upland wildlife… We are still working every day for the places and privileges we can’t afford to lose.

Conservation is about people as much as it is about wildlife, but shelter-in-place ordinances and social distancing protocols clearly influence the way we can communicate and work together. The landowners we are working with are grateful for our continued efforts to maintain communication while safely fulfilling our obligations as they relate to conservation planning on their properties. We are having more frequent phone calls, leaving sketched plans and notes in mailboxes or porches, and wiping down the ATVs while yelling observations back-and-forth.

Landowners and property managers don’t want to put their plans on hold, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to help them move forward and commit to their visions of conservation during a time when everything else in our communities seems to be at standstill. 

We invite you to page through our #UnitedByUplands FlipBook and view some examples of what our team has been actively working on while adapting to our “new normal.” Of course, none of these projects would be possible without the support of people like you. If you’re able, please considering making a timely and tax-deductible gift to our mission of habitat conservation today.
