Perhaps you’ve spent time in grizzly country, exploring the mountains and rivers of the American West. Perhaps grizzly bears inspire you and make you feel connected to a sense of wildness and possibility. Maybe you would like to see a connected landscape of habitat for all of the wild creatures ranging from Canada to Yellowstone. You can make a lasting impact for wildlife habitat by making a legacy gift to The Vital Ground Foundation. By supporting our work through a bequest or other planned gift, you’re helping to permanently protect habitat for grizzly bears and countless other wild creatures.

Through the years, planned and memorial gifts have helped Vital Ground tackle new projects and protect more habitat on-the-ground, leaving a lasting legacy for wildlife and people.
