The Nature Conservancy in Utah has helped protect more than 1.2 million acres of public and private land throughout the state for plants, animals and people.
Through its partnership with The Nature Conservancy in Utah since the early 1980s, the Foundation has awarded more than $21.8 million in support of numerous campaigns and initiatives fostering the critical work of protecting our state's natural lands, its vital habitats and waters, and its wondrous landscapes. Building on a 30-plus-year legacy of support that began with personal gifts from George and Dolores Eccles, the Foundation continues to invest more than $1 million annually in the Conservancy’s impactful initiatives.
Through the dedication and hard work of The Nature Conservancy’s Utah staff, board members, volunteers and donors, it has helped protect more than 1.2 million acres of public and private land throughout the state for plants, animals and people, from the Great Salt Lake and the Bear River in Northern Utah to Dugout Ranch in Southern Utah … and many places in between.
The Foundation is pleased to be a catalyst for preservation initiatives, and to help the Conservancy build on its progress to date, preserving and protecting places that are among the most incredibly beautiful landscapes anywhere in the nation. It is heartening to know that in fostering the success of The Nature Conservancy in Utah, the opportunities for all Utahns to enjoy the wonders of our state are deeply enriched today… as they will be throughout the future.
