EnvironmentIn the past decade, the Foundation has contributed more than $4 million to environmental causes, with funding focused primarily on support for The Nature Conservancy of Utah and The Nature Conservancy of Oregon.  These grants have been directed primarily toward land acquisition and/or retirement of grazing rights in critical habitats within both of these states.  In addition, significant grants have assisted The Nature Conservancy of Idaho, The Grand Canyon Trust and The Friends of the Bear River Refuge, and other organizations in the Northwest and Intermountain West.
