Connecting Landscapes and Protecting Wildlife at Wild River

August, 9 2017  |  by kevin Back »

A great big Thank You to all the contributors and friends of Vital Ground who helped us meet the $50,000 match for our recent Right Place Campaign!  And a special thank you to the Johnson Family Foundation and to the Nasi family for providing the matching challenge.

Because of your help, in late September we will purchase the first seven lots of the Wild River project.

Your support will be combined with commitments from the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative and several other key partners, including Heart of the Rockies Initiative, Clif Bar Family Foundation, Cinnabar Foundation, First Interstate Bank, Weeden Foundation and Steele Reese Foundation to help keep the Cabinet and Purcell ecosystems connected!

Together, we are stitching together a wildlife corridor between these two isolated grizzly bear populations.

On behalf of the many species that will benefit from the Wild River project – we thank you for your commitment!
