Review for Conservation Lands Foundation, Durango, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Conservation Lands Foundation is one of those rare groups that shows up ahead of the game. Their focus on securing consistent, sound and sustainable management for the National Landscape Conservation system by combining grassroots Friends groups into a nationwide coalition represents an excellent approach. The state-based staff has been very helpful at bringing national experience and vision down to the local level. For us in the Eastern Sierra at Friends of the Inyo, this approach of empowering the grassroots to protect, restore and enhance our public lands has worked well; the Conservation Lands Foundation has given us capacity to work on public lands issues that few other groups can.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

thoughtful, knowledgeable, and open to working with local people on national issues.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Preserve and sustain more of the last of the best wild public lands scattered around the West.
