Take a stand for future generations of wildlife and people by creating a conservation legacy this spring with help from Vital Ground's free will-writing resource.

Introducing FreeWill, a new resource for you and for grizzlies

Spring is a special time at Vital Ground. As grizzly bears emerge from winter dens, tiny cubs take their first steps on the landscape. Along Montana’s Rocky Mountain Front, thousands of tundra swans stop to rest as part of their migration. In the season of renewal, it is easy to feel rejuvenated in our mission to conserve land for these amazing creatures and all the world-class wildlife of the Northern Rockies.

Spring is also a time for planting seeds—and this season, we invite you to plant a seed that protects wildlife for future generations by naming Vital Ground in your estate plan.

Vital Ground’s new partnership with FreeWill makes this important life task easier than ever. Your estate plan is an opportunity to protect your loved ones and make a lasting impact on the causes—and wild creatures—you care about. FreeWill’s simple tool makes it 100% free to create a will and name Vital Ground as a beneficiary of your plan. It’s user-friendly and takes most people only around 20 minutes.


Planned gifts sustain Vital Ground as we take a stand for future generations of wildlife and people by conserving crucial grizzly habitat. With your gift, you can join us in this hopeful work, and as a result you’ll become a member of our prestigious Silvertip Legacy Circle.

Grizzly bears connect us to a sense of wildness and possibility. Their presence on the land benefits entire ecosystems in ways both large and small. As these great bears return to our shared landscapes this spring, we invite you to explore the possibility of giving back to grizzlies and growing your legacy and impact for wildlife.
