Review for Conservation Lands Foundation, Durango, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Conservation Lands Foundation has assisted our nonprofit watershed restoration and conservation partnership through funding for a variety of activities including native prairie restoration, salmon surveys, and public education. They have also included us in a number of valuable networking events and interactions. The Foundation is currently considering additional funding for us to enhance the development of the Mattole Coho Recovery Strategy, a critical part of our efforts to save one of the King Range National Conservation Area's iconic salmon species from extinction. We greatly appreciate the Foundation's ongoing support for our work to protect the Mattole watershed and the King Range. The foundation places great value on innovative partnership approaches to conservation, which has proved successful over our organizations' 30 years experience.
