The purpose of the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund is to accelerate the pace of conservation at scale across the United States through targeted support of collaborative Landscape Conservation. The Catalyst Fund specifically supports key collaborative processes and activities to build critical capacity and forward conservation momentum in Landscape Conservation Partnerships.


The Catalyst Fund was established in recognition that:

  • Working at the landscape scale—the scale nature functions—is the only effective way to tackle pressing challenges such as climate change, habitat loss, and landscape fragmentation;
  • Extensive and enduring collaboration is essential to achieving successful conservation across whole landscapes; and
  • It takes dedicated time and resources to build and sustain such collaboration, and this is not possible without directing sufficient funding specifically for this purpose—yet funding to directly support collaboration is scarce and difficult to acquire.

RiversEdge West's
