Since inception in 1989, Conservation Alliance funding has helped save more than 73 million acres of wildlands; protect 3,575 miles of rivers; stop or remove 35 dams; designate five marine reserves; and purchase 17 climbing areas.
There's nothing quite like crushing a bag of jerky while adventuring through the wild. Each purchase of RF JERKY directly helps to protect North America's most epic National Parks and wild places.
Success! Long Lake is a local treasure in the Gunnison Valley near Crested Butte, Colorado. In collaboration with other organizations, @crestedbuttelandtrust utilized @conservationalliance funding to protect 750 acres of land and water, including Long Lake, Copley Lake and private property near The Fossil Ridge Wilderness. Copley Lake and Fossil Ridge property, both formerly in private ownership, are now a part of the Gunnison National Forest, exchanged for land trust ownership and protection of Long Lake.
While the northern shore of Long Lake will be managed for sustainable recreation use, the surrounding area provides wildlife habitat and key agricultural corridors. The southern slope of Long Lake is a crucial corridor for elk and deer migration. We are proud to support the Conservation Alliance and this important project to help protect and keep the beautiful Gunnison Valley wild! #ProudMember
