WildEarth Guardians protects and restores the wildlife, wild places, wild rivers, and health of the American West.
A FORCE FOR NATURE
We believe in nature’s right to exist—and thrive. Driven by passion, we’ve tackled some of the West’s most difficult and pressing conservation challenges over the past three decades. Our work is organized around four programs bringing people, science, and the law together in defense of the American West.
Over the last 20 years, Guardians has planted trees and native vegetation and helped to reconnect the natural processes that allow streams and wetlands to flourish and native species to thrive. Celebrate restoration at the 2018 Guardians Gala, taking place in Santa Fe on September 21.
