The David and Lucile Packard Foundation has a long-standing commitment to the successful conservation of land in California and the Western part of North America. Over the years, the Foundation has supported a wide range of activities related to land conservation – including scientific research, policy research, advocacy, building capacity of organizations engaged in this work, and supporting the purchase of critical lands or easements protecting those lands. In recognition of the Foundation’s 50th Anniversary, we have developed a website that maps our history of contributions and celebrates stories of progress achieved with the Foundation’s support and through the work of our many long-time partners.
On this website you will find an interactive mapping tool which shows the Foundation’s contributions to land and easement acquisitions — through both grants and PRIs — in the North American West since 1964, along with stories highlighting milestones and efforts from across the wide range of land conservation activities accomplished with our partners.
The mapping tool is dynamic, giving us the ability to update or add information over time, with a goal of providing as complete a picture as possible. As you review the site, please feel free to reach out to [email protected] with any questions or feedback you may have.
The Packard Foundation continues to believe that the biodiversity and iconic beauty found in this region are critically important to protect and preserve. To learn more about our land conservation strategy, click here.
