Land Conservation Assistance Network Updated:10/2017

The Resources First Foundation (RFF) was established in 2000 as a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit organization to provide conservation education tools and solutions to promote conservation and restoration activities for fish, wildlife and other natural resources primarily on privately owned lands across the United States.  In July of 2017 RFF consolidated its resources with the Private Landowner Network and changed its name to the Land Conservation Assistance Network (LandCAN).

Since its inception, LandCAN has been guided by the principle that any comprehensive conservation strategy must address the human component for widespread adoption of conservation values. As such, LandCAN recognizes private landowners as stewards of the land, and caretakers of our future natural resources. 61% of our nation’s landscape (71% of the continental U.S.) is in private ownership, yet the overwhelming majority of our public and philanthropic financial resources are focused in public land conservation, ignoring the largest segment of the market needing conservation assistance, tutelage and freedom to innovate.

Current program areas include:

  • The development of web-based projects designed to serve the conservation objectives of the private landowner community across the United States.
  • The purchase of high seas and interceptory Atlantic salmon fisheries through the Atlantic Salmon Fund.
  • Community-based education, conservation, and improvement programs on Bequia, St. Vincent through Moonhole Friends Foundation
