Conservation organizations lack sufficient capacity to protect important public land and water resources. This grant to the Western Conservation Foundation (WCF) would support its goal of building capacity in up to three states in the West. WCF will employ experts in strategic communications, policy campaigns, and outreach and organizing to support existing organizations and, where necessary, create new ones to achieve land protection goals.
