25th Anniversary: Headwaters

"What attracted me to the Conservancy is the research that goes into choosing projects."

-Judy Opatrny, Supporter

With your help, we are:

  • Treating 75 miles of Grass and Cottonwood creeks in northwest Wyoming for invasive weeds, replacing tamarisk and Russian olive with native trees.
  • Partnerhing in a pilot program along the Upper Green River that will give landowners market-based incentives for improving wildlife habitat and riparian health.
  • Launching a partnership on the Tongue River near Sheridan to enroll landowners in cost-share water-improvement projects that combat bacteria contamination and aging irrigation systems.

What Our Supporters Say:

I’ve always lived near oceans and rivers. So I have a deep connection to this type of environment and appreciate its value and power. 

All our lives depend on freshwater—there is a reason it’s in the Conservancy’s mission statement.

What attracted me to the Conservancy is the thoughtfulness and research that goes into choosing projects.

The on-the-ground work that develops from this scientific approach is a valuable tool for making water-management decisions here and around the world. 

I invite you to join the Wyoming Wild and Working campaign for this reason. It is such an opportune time to give a gift, as the state of Wyoming develops its water policy, and the Conservancy lends its collaborative, research-driven voice to the conversation. 

There are many opportunities for a positive outcome and great benefit for future generations. Let’s work together now to keep our water resources healthy for tomorrow.
