Large Landscape Vision

The Heart of the Rockies large landscape vision, called the Keystone Lands Conservation Program, is guided by five landscape-scaled themes:

  • Connectivity
  • Water
  • Productive Agricultural Lands
  • Working Forests
  • Climate Resiliency

Our Keystone Lands projects are strategically identified properties whose conservation makes an impact on these landscape themes.  The Heart of the Rockies Keystone Portfolio targets project areas that have three criteria:

  1. Highest conservation value related to our Landscape-scale Themes
  2. Urgent threat of forever being developed and fragmented
  3. Greatest opportunity of success demonstrated by strong partnerships, community support, and willing landowners.
