Heart of the Rockies Initiative

The Heart of the Rockies Initiative is a land trust partnership that works to conserve both continentally significant ecological values at the landscape scale and community values that are prized locally. This partnership provides strategic vision, the latest science, and international cooperation to the strong collaborative work being done by 23 land trusts, protecting critical habitats and private ranch, farm and timberlands in the Rocky Mountains of Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia and Alberta.

We achieve our “all-lands” vision by providing a collaborative structure that brings both public land and private land stakeholders together to deliver science-based conservation planning and to collaboratively build conservation capacity and capital funding.
