Conservation Planning

“Being smart about protecting and restoring ecologically healthy landscapes depends on good science. But science isn’t conservation until that knowledge is converted into action.

The Heart of the Rockies Initiative is a critical partner for turning our work into real conservation by getting it to the diverse community of implementers.

– Brent Brock, Craighead Environmental Research Institute – Bozeman, MT


Heart of the Rockies Initiative facilitates large landscape conservation by delivering the latest science to on-the-ground private land conservation practitioners.

Heart of the Rockies works with agency and independent scientists to identify emerging data and make it available to land trusts at scales needed for conservation action.
