Despite serious political challenges in 2018, our grantees delivered 15 conservation victories that protected 173,683 acres of land and five river miles, removed four dams, and purchased one climbing area. We work hard to identify effective conservation organizations that can succeed in any political climate, and are proud of our results in 2018. We also made grants from our new Public Lands Defense Fund to organizations working to defend the integrity of our public lands system. Those grants are challenging new threats to public lands posed by the Trump Administration. We supplemented our grants with advocacy efforts that demonstrate business support for protected wild places, bringing our voices to decision makers in Washington, DC and on the local level. Here is another look at our year in numbers:
We had an eventful 2018, thank you for sharing it with us!
