Toward a Productive and Healthy West — Please Join Us by Signing On!


Greetings friends and colleagues – The Western Landowners Alliance, Rural Voices for Conservation Coalition, Family Farm Alliance, and Partners for Conservation, as groups working across the West, coordinated with partner organizations to create the attached positive, non-partisan statement of principles for solutions for working lands and communities in the West. We need to unite our voices to catalyze change on our Western landscapes. Change that will create the healthy lands, waters, and communities we need and the West deserves.


We invite your group to join us in encouraging such perspectives and solutions at the federal level by signing on to this statement. Your group’s name will appear below the “sincerely” line on p.2. We envision a subsequent document that includes recommendations under each principle; the sign-on link below provides an opportunity for your suggestions.


It’s time for a clear demonstration that organizations and rural communities are collaboratively working together on solutions that benefit economies and the land. Please join us in this demonstration of commitment by adding your group’s name and sharing with your networks of groups doing similar work in the West.


Deadline June 27 @ 5 pm Mountain. Sign on here –

Apologies for cross-postings.

Rangeland monitoring – why to monitor and resources to get you started

The value of monitoring land attributes are generally known among land stewards. The greatest value is in gaining an understanding of the soils, plants and animals you manage, documenting that information and then using that information to guide future decisions.

We’re in this together

At Western Landowners Alliance, we respect land as a living community that includes both people and wildlife. Today, the movement for racial justice underscores more than ever that we are one people on a finite planet. Our care for one another and our care for the land go hand in hand. The impulses that lead people to abuse others are the same impulses that lead to abuse of land and natural resources. Yet we also have the capacity to create systems, cultures and relationships that curtail injustice, generate healing and bring forward the better aspects of our nature. There has never been a more important time to do so.

Stay up to date on policy changes and new developments.

Western Landowners Alliance will send you the latest developments and policy updates important to the economic and ecological health of working lands.

WLA works on behalf of landowners and practitioners throughout the West. We will never share your contact information with anyone. You can manage your subscription or unsubscribe at any time.
