Enhancing Resources First Foundation’s national coverage by adding new county-level detail, RFF’s StateConservation.org websites are providing landowners in five states free, one-stop-shopping access to vital land-management information. Arkansas is the latest addition to our interactive marketplace, giving landowners there advantages already enjoyed by those in California, Maine, Mississippi and the Houston, TX region. Next in line: Louisiana, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

Among enthusiastic supporters, Texas Parks & Wildlife Executive Director Carter Smith calls for creating “the Lone Star Conservation Center as a comprehensive, online resource website for use by Texas’ private landowners.” Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources Secretary John Quigley writes that his department “strongly supports the efforts of the Resources First Foundation to create a Pennsylvania-specific website to reach and inform private landowners on ways to improve conservation results statewide.”

As part of the RFF mission to “support and develop innovative conservation programs to strengthen and sustain rural communities, economies, and green businesses, and to support private sector conservation initiatives,” the state sites are designed to empower a nationwide network of citizen stewards with tools and resources to support wildlife habitat, open space, ecological and economic health, and energy efficiency. Providing private landowners with the full spectrum of land management, conservation and estate planning information is key to enhancing rural heritage along with ecological and economic sustainability.
