Conservation Alliance Accepting Applications for Public Lands Defense Fund

The Conservation Alliance is a group of outdoor businesses that supports efforts to protect specific wild places for their habitat and recreational value.

To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its Public Lands Defense Fund, which supports organizations working to preserve and defend the integrity of our public lands system.

Grants will be awarded in support of efforts to defend existing protections for landscapes and waterways on public lands (e.g., national monuments, roadless areas, wilderness study areas, and mineral withdrawal areas); defend bedrock conservation laws (e.g., Wilderness Act, Antiquities Act, National Environmental Policy Act); and oppose the proposed transfer of federal lands to the states or to private hands.

To be eligible, organizations must considered tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the United States Internal Revenue Code.

See the Conservation Alliance website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
