Did you know? Landowners can receive substantial payments for improving the health, water quality, and natural resource habitat of their land through conservation finance opportunities. However, there is a lack of readily available tools and information that landowners can use to assess these options. Recognizing this need, Western Landowners Alliance (WLA) and WRA, Inc. have partnered to offer a nine-part, monthly blog series focused on how landowners can leverage the opportunities offered by conservation finance to further both conservation and economic goals.

WRA is a leader in this space, having worked with landowners to develop hundreds of wetland and habitat mitigation projects across the West and having developed innovative conservation finance solutions such as a carbon cooperative for small timberland owners in California and greater sage-grouse mitigation projects in Colorado and Wyoming. The series will cover a broad range of topics from species conservation banks to carbon projects to payments for water quality. The blogs will focus on practical information that will allow landowners to understand the basics of each market and will provide land assessment tools to empower landowners with a better understanding of the opportunities to enhance their land’s natural resource value.

WLA is excited to present this conservation finance blog series. Keep an eye out for the first post in the series on our Facebook page and on our website blog — next Wednesday, March 21!
