Landowner Conservation Campaign

|||| |||| ||||

Status

Private land makes up a significant portion of the corridor. It is important that we establish positive working relationships with those who own private land in the corridor, especially those who rely on these lands for their livelihood.

In 2018, Y2U will work with Wild Utah Project and other professionals to conduct a GIS analysis helping determine wildlife bottlenecks and impedance points in the corridor, particularly on private land.

This will help inform an on-the-ground outreach campaign with private landowners to retrofit existing  fences with wildlife friendly fencing. We already established relationships with several potential program participants this year.

We will be incentivizing program participation by helping landowners write grants to provide free or reduced cost wildlife friendly fencing.

Expected Outcome

Provide resources and assistance with private land restoration efforts.
