Summary: In 2005, Vital Ground helped fund the purchase of three privately held properties located within Togiak National Wildlife Refuge through grants to The Conservation Fund. The first two purchases (30 and 40 acres, respectively) are located on Goodnews Lake. The third acquired 160 acres on the Togiak River. Now part of the refuge, these lands help protect important bear travel corridors and salmon spawning streams that flow into Bristol Bay.
