conservation lands foundation

The Conservation Lands Foundation (CLF) is a national non-profit organization headquartered in Durango, Colorado with offices in San Francisco, Albuquerque, Bozeman, Las Cruces, Joshua Tree, and Washington, DC. The Conservation Lands Foundation was established in 2007 to protect the premier lands and waters under the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) jurisdiction – specifically the 34+ million acres and 2,400 miles of National Monuments and National Conservation Areas, Wilderness and Wilderness Study Areas, Wild and Scenic Rivers and National Scenic and Historic Trails that make up our National Conservation Lands.


Our mission is to protect, restore and expand the National Conservation Lands through education, advocacy, and partnerships. 

The Conservation Lands Foundation has become one of the nation’s most effective public land conservation organizations, building a vibrant grassroots network of local organizations focused on individual units of the National Conservation Lands, and protecting millions of acres of land through advocacy, public education, and partnerships with other organizations, local communities, and the BLM. The Conservation Lands Foundation has developed strong relationships with leaders in the Executive Branch, Congress, the Department of the Interior, the conservation community, the media, and western communities.

The Conservation Lands Foundation seeks an experienced, visionary, and strategic leader who will guide our team in advancing our mission in the critical next phase of our organization.   Our new leader will have the opportunity to accomplish major, tangible conservation outcomes for the National Conservation Lands.
