Much of the West is public land, but private ranches and farms are often located in ecologically important river valleys. The Sand County Foundation works with farmers, ranchers, and foresters to improve the quality of their lands through science, ethics, and incentives. This general support grant to the Foundation will support its efforts to work with landowners, communities, and public land agencies in the West to incentivize habitat protection.
