Grants to this Grantee
for U.S. Public Lands and Rivers Conservation  
The Pew Charitable Trusts’ U.S. public lands and rivers conservation campaign works with communities west-wide to conserve biodiversity by identifying and protecting wildlife corridors, protecting and restoring free-flowing rivers, and expanding core habitat designations. In particular, Pew is working with other Western Conservation grantees, scientists, local partners, tribes, sportsmen and sportswomen groups, members of the business community, mayors, county commissioners, veterans, and others to advance new policies that safeguard these wild places and wild rivers for future generations to use and enjoy. At the local level, Pew continues to work with federal, state, and local natural resource officials and agencies to secure the removal or replacement of river barriers impeding fish passage, in coordination with Resources Legacy Fund’s Open Rivers Fund; seek new public funding for construction of wildlife crossing infrastructure projects within identified migration corridors; and preserve core areas of passageway for wildlife connectivity through federal land-use plans. (Substrategy: Advance Conservation Protections)
