Since 2012, Working Lands for Wildlife has partnered with the Conservation Effects Assessment Project to co-produce 37 peer-reviewed studies that measure conservation outcomes, build accountability, and improve conservation effectiveness across the West.
Through NRCS partnerships with the Wood River Land Trust, The Nature Conservancy and local ranching families, two new conservation easements protect an additional 2,500 acres of prime sagebrush habitat in Idaho’s Pioneers-to-Craters landscape.
The Etchart Family worked with the NRCS, TNC, and the CO Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust to place much of the ranch in a conservation easement protecting this prime working land from development and preserving habitat for elk, deer, and sage grouse.
New conservation easement in Washington state preserves more than 2,000 acres of native sagebrush range in critical sage grouse habitat, adding to a 6,800-acre easement the neighboring ranch placed under a conservation easement in 2019.
