Little will change without public support for conservation goals and for sustainable development and energy policies. In communities all around the West, people are engaged in creative efforts, large and small, that express a new ethos valuing conservation and sustainable practices – for generations to come. Reaching out to and cultivating strong thoughtful leaders who can speak to and with fellow citizens, public agencies, and legislative representatives help to build board support for a public policy agenda that supports the integrity of western ecosystems. The Foundation will support organizations working to accomplish the following objectives:
- Mobilize key constituencies to support land, water, energy, and climate outcomes
- Provide public feedback to decision makers on land, water, energy, and climate issues
- Distribute analysis and research to educate decisionmakers on land, water, energy, and climate issues
