Grants to this Grantee
for support of the National Monuments Campaign  
National monuments are protective public land designations that can be created by the president without action by Congress. This renewal grant to the Conservation Lands Foundation would continue support for its successful efforts over the last year that resulted in the creation of five new national monuments in the West. Over the next year, it will seek the designation of six new national monuments and lay the groundwork for another three. The Conservation Lands Foundation will use public education, research, and outreach to build support for this campaign.
for general operating support  
The Conservation Lands Foundation's goal is to expand the National Landscape Conservation System to encompass the entire range of biologically important Bureau of Land Management lands and to ensure the system is managed for ecological integrity. Some of the initiatives the organization would undertake during the grant period include an effort to create a robust system of support groups around key National Landscape Conservation System lands, to implement the new Secretarial Order on managing National Conservation System lands adopted by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar in 2010, and to bring new attention to the needs of these lands through outreach to the public, policymakers, and the media.
