The Conservation Fund forges partnerships to conserve America's Land Legacy of land and water resources. Through land acquisition, community initiatives, and leadership training, the Fund and its partners demonstrate sustainable conservation solutions emphasizing the integration of economic and environmental goals.
Since 1985, The Conservation Fund, through its partnership-driven approach, has protected more than three million acres of America's outdoor heritage -- leading other organizations in leverage and effectiveness. From wildlife habitat and river corridors to farms, forests and historical sites, the Fund works in partnership to buy land for conservation, building a positive land legacy for America?s future generations. These lands are added to our national parks, wildlife refuges, and forests as well as state parks and wildlife areas. These lands also become publicly owned local parks and open space, or remain in private ownership as farms, forests and ranches. Land preserved by The Conservation Fund is preserved forever - and always with future generations in mind. Balancing environmental principles with economic goals, the Fund creates public and private partnerships to demonstrate sustainable conservation solutions for the 21st Century.
