A land trust partnership working together to conserve clean water,
iconic Western landscapes, and the communities that depend on them.

Making Good
 Conservation Great

The Heart of the Rockies Initiative provides strategic vision, the latest science, and international cooperation to the strong work being done by 24 land trusts, protecting critical habitats and private ranch, farm and timberlands in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia and Alberta. 

Each partner is strong, but by working together we make the team stronger by providing:

   • collaborative planning
   • capacity building
   • capital fundraising

Our core mission is to work together to increase the pace of strategic private land conservation of ecological, agricultural and cultural significance.
