Why become a member?
WLA was founded by owners and managers of private lands who love the West and want to do all we can to save it. Members join their voice with our coalition of ranchers, farmers and foresters to ensure working lands remain whole, healthy and able to support both people and wildlife.
What does membership help us do?
Provide a seat at the table
We work to ensure that the values and interests of those who own and manage private lands are represented in key policy decisions that directly impact our lands and stewardship. We also bring diverse stakeholders together to find common sense, common ground solutions to the many challenges we face in the West today. This includes ensuring that working lands support quality livelihoods and human communities while also delivering the many values we all care about, from wildlife habitat to clean water.
Promote private stewardship
For long term success, it is vital that contributions and perspectives from the private landscape be communicated and understood both broadly within society and by special interest groups. This story needs to be told through the media, films, and publications. Landscape-scale conservation cannot be achieved without private lands.
Support a community of practice
WLA convenes its members to share knowledge and best practices that support on-the-ground stewardship. These include ranch tours, meetings and conferences across the West. Each month we also provide a widely-read Western Digest of the most relevant land management resources, issues, and events.
What do members receive in return?
Members receive discounts on our Stewardship in Action Tours and other events, a regular "Western Digest" digital newsletter that provides insights, updates, and inspirational stories on stewardship in the West, and printed copies of our flagship publications (upon request).
Members also receive the powerful feeling that they are helping secure a thriving future for both people and wildlife in the West.
