Overview
This general support grant to the Resources Legacy Fund would support its work in California, Oregon, and Washington to conserve land and water resources and promote new conservation finance opportunities. Three of the highest priorities for the Fund are: (a) improving and expanding California’s state parks system to meet the diverse cultural and ecological needs of the state, (b) ensuring California adopts new water policies that provide for the needs of agriculture and city residents and protect fragile watersheds, and (c) identifying opportunities in Oregon and Washington to increase the amount of public funding for habitat protection and restoration.

For instance, IBCC supports the Indigenous Leadership Initiative to help strengthen Indigenous nationhood and fulfill Indigenous cultural responsibilities to the land. The Indigenous Leadership Initiative is working with First Nations across Canada on land-use planning, designation of new Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas, and programs to fund Indigenous Guardians to steward these protected areas.
